Playing Experience

Juan Martin has a vast amount of experience playing and coaching internationally, and has been a key member of the Mannheim Tornados of the German Bundesliga 1 South since 2014. In his four years with the Tornados, Juan has amassed 26 doubles, 4 triples and 9 home runs in 417 at-bats, while hitting .343.

Born in Argentina, his experience representing his country on the Argentinian National Team speaks volumes of the level of baseball he plays at and amount of baseball knowledge he brings to the table.

After a couple years playing for the Dominican Summer League for the Tampa Bay Rays, Juan first brought is game overseas to Europe to play in Italy in 2011, taking advantage of his Italian dual citizenship with the country. Juan is returning to Italy in 2018 to play for T&A San Marino of the Italian Baseball League.

He has since played winter baseball overseas twice, once in Australia in 2014/15 where he won the league batting title and most recently for the 2016/2017 winter to play in South Africa.

Juan’s coaching resume is as impressive as his playing resume as it dates back to 2008 and includes coaching at all levels and as player-coach for the Tornados in 2016.

Juan is now looking to study abroad while playing baseball and is open to all offers. He will be available at the end of the 2018 summer season which will conclude in the early fall. Juan is wants to finish his studies in sports science.
