An All-American performer at Maryland and currently a member of the Houston Astros organizaton, Kevin Martir joined the Terrapin staff as a student assistant in August of 2016.

Martir started 158 games over the course of three seasons and was noted for his defensive skill behind the plate and skill in managing his pitchers. He was a central figure in the two most successful seasons in Maryland history, helping the Terps to a combined 82 wins and two NCAA Regional Championships over his last two campaigns in College Park.

One of the best catchers in Maryland history, Martir was named a third-team All-American in 2015 after leading the Terps in average (.342) and on-base percentage (.441) along with slugging seven home runs and 17 doubles. He notched 45 RBI and scored 45 runs.

He was named one of 20 semifinalists for the Johnny Bench Award, given to the nation’s top catcher. He was also named to the All-Big Ten Third Team.

As a sophomore, Martir started 49 games and had a 13-game hitting streak at the end of the season. He was named to the Columbia All-Regional team after helping Maryland defeat South Carolina to advance to its first ever NCAA Super Regional. He also earned ACC All-Tournament honors.

Martir played in 50 games as a freshman and finished with a .279 average with 25 runs scored and 30 RBI.

After being selected by the Houston Astros in the 18th round of the 2015 MLB Draft, Martir continued his winning ways, capturing an Appalachian League title with the Greeneville Astros. He is currently a member of the Tri-City Valleycats of the Class-A New York-Penn League.
