Photos from Siena's season-opening 7-1 baseball loss to Central Florida in Orlando
GENERAL: Slick fielding infielder with tremendous hands and great instincts...Polished player who is expected to be a major contributor for four years...Expected to be one of the top defensive shortstops program has seen in some time.
BEFORE SIENA: Posted a .550 on-base percentage as a junior at Governor Livingston High School batting .350 with 35 hits, 30 walks, and 21 stolen bases in 21 attempts...In the field, he was part of a double-play combination that set a state record with 61 twin killings in a single season.
ROSSI ON MARTIS: "Tyler is coming off an outstanding fall season and is projected to be the starting shortstop. He's an aggressive, hungry player who we feel will be a major impact player immediately."
