Baseball Returns to Edison for 2012 Season
Edison Community College...
For the first time in nearly 20 years this spring, Edison Community
College will be fielding a baseball team.
After initial meetings this fall to gauge interest, 17 players who are
enrolled at Edison have signed on to play for the club team, that will
play its first game March 22 against Bowling Green State University.
Dr. Thomas Martinez, instructor of anatomy and Physiology at Edison, is
coaching the team and along with athletic director Chip Hare, has been
instrumental in bringing baseball back to the college. Martinez played
college baseball for UNLV, and spent some time playing in the minor
leagues. The team will have its membership with the National Club
“We’re really happy to have baseball back here at Edison after a long
time away,” said Martinez. “The young men that we’ve assembled for this
team have shown a lot of dedication and heart in bringing this program
back to Edison.”
During the 2012 season, the Edison squad will play six opponents –
totaling 20 games – including three Big Ten teams (Indiana University,
The Ohio State University, and Purdue University). The Chargers will
also go up against Grand Valley State University and Wright State
“We’re going to face some very tough competition this year from very
experienced and much larger schools,” said Martinez. “Our goal up until
the start of the season is to continue working hard and improving our
team chemistry so on March 22 we’re ready to hit the field.”
Home games for the Chargers will be played at the Piqua High School
Freshman Field. For more information on the team, please contact Edison
Athletic Director Chip Hare at (937) 778-7852 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
