USI baseball signs a pair for 2010

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana baseball team announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Mark Walther and infielder/outfielder Todd Martin to national letters of intent for the 2010 season.

Walther, a native of Kankakee, Illinois, will come to USI after two seasons at Parkland College (Champaign, Illinois). He was 3-0 during his first collegiate season in 2008 with a 3.56 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 17 appearances.

Prior to starting his collegiate career at Parkland, Walther played baseball and basketball at Herscher High School (Herscher, Illinois).

"Mark is a submarine pitcher who will give us deception out of the pen," said USI Head Coach Tracy Archuleta. "He has had great success at Parkland and will be expected to pitch a lot for us in 2010. We are eager to see his development at the next level."

Martin, a native of Rockport, Indiana, is currently in his second season at John A. Logan College (Carterville, Illinois). He batted .224 during his first season with the Volunteers with one home run and 10 RBIs.

A three-sport athlete at South Spencer High School (Rockport, Indiana), Martin was a three-time All-Conference performer in baseball and football and a two-time award winner in basketball. He also was a three-time All-State player in football.

Martin helped SSHS to the 2007 Indiana state championship.

"Todd was highly recruited out of South Spencer and has been a part of two winning programs (John A. Logan and SSHS)," said Archuleta. "He is a competitor with great abilities at the plate and in the outfield. We are excited to sign a local player with his talent."

USI finished last season with a 36-20 overall record and won the GLVC West Division with a 24-7 mark.
