Prior to this position, Coach Martinez brings valuable experience to the Bombers with his time as Galveston College’s Pitching and Catchers Coach of two years. His experience extends beyond this as he is credited with playing at UTRGV before he began coaching! Head Coach James Dillard is looking forward to having Martinez as an assistant saying, “Matteo is a great young coach that will make our team a championship contender. He will do a great job with our pitching staff and catchers. Matteo understands both the mental part of coaching and playing along with the mechanics side of pitching. He will be a great sounding board for our pitching staff along with a great teacher. Excited about sharing a dugout with Coach Martinez”.
