Featured Athlete



March 26, 2012

Javier Marticorena is the right fielder for the Point Park University baseball team, and he is this week's Featured Athlete (March 26, 2012).

Marticorena is a sophomore from Miami, Fla., and a transfer this year from NAIA St. Thomas (FL) University. He is leading the Pioneers with a .382 batting average, four home runs and 24 RBIs as of the start of this week.

He is on a major tear of late as he has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games with a .571 (20 for 35) batting average during that span that began March 8. He was named the AMC Player of the Week from March 12-18.

Marticorena is a product of American High School, where he was under the guidance of head coach Ricky Gutierrez. He was an All-Dade County selection and the Florida 6A Player of the Year in his senior year of 2010.
