Baseball’s Brice Martin to Play at Benedictine (Kan.) College

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Senior baseball player Brice Martin has committed to play and attend Benedictine (Kan.) College in Atchison, Kan., for the NAIA school.

“I am really excited to go play at Benedictine,” said Martin. “I went on a visit two months ago and I felt really wanted there from the Coach and President. Everyone there was awesome.”

Martin was introduced to the school by his grandfather.

“It has always been my dream to play college baseball,” said Martin. “I have wanted to play at the next level and continue playing baseball as long as a I can.”

He will play for Eric Peterson, who has been the head coach for the Ravens since 2018.

“He is a great guy and has built a great program at Benedictine College,” said Martin, who is undecided on his intended major. “He has coached them to two regionals and they are always one of the top teams in our division.”

Martin has been a two-sport standout for the Saints. He was also a letter winner on the basketball team last year, playing 15 games as a junior and posting two games in double digits.

“Basketball was not something I planned to play in high school,” said Martin. “It has turned out to be something I love playing. We are going to have a special team this year.”

On the baseball field, Martin hit .312 as a junior for the Saints over 17 games with nine runs scored and seven runs batted in. He had a season-best three hits and three RBI against Goldwater.

“We want to win state championship in baseball,” said Martin, who plays outfield and pitcher. “We have the talent.”

Martin is following in the footsteps of his dad, who played college baseball at Cochise College and University of Wyoming.

Martin will join nine Saints who will participate in the Signing Day Celebration on Wednesday, Nov. 10. The event will be held at 11:30 a.m. in the Jensen Gym.
