East pitcher gets recognized

East's Jacob Martinez receives honorable mention

VICTORIA, Texas — East pitcher Jacob Martinez may not throw another inning this season due to the UIL’s suspension of play, but he’s already received some recognition.

The senior was named 5A honorable mention for first half pitcher of the year this week by Texas High School Baseball’s website. Before the suspension of play, Martinez had thrown 19 innings, giving up just 10 hits and one earned run. He struck out 35 and walked just five.

UIL competition is currently suspended through at least May 4th.
