Four Mariners Named All-Landmark Conference
The USMMA baseball program put four players on the 2014 All-Landmark Conference teams with Warren Hartmann (Wyckoff, NJ) and Danny Collins (Sleepy Hollow, NY) earning first-team honors. Jake Martin (San Diego, CA) and Cameron Stadele (Alpharetta, GA) both secured a spot on the All-Landmark Conference Second-Team. USMMA finished the season 21-13-1 and earned its second straight trip to the Landmark Conference Tournament.
Hartmann rounds out his collegiate career with his third All-Landmark selection after a 2014 campaign in which he topped the league with a .436 batting average and six homeruns. He also ranked first in the Landmark with a .714 slugging percentage, second in stolen bases with 23 as well as on-base percentage with a .469 mark, and third in hits (39) and runs scored (58). Hartmann was 6-of-13 in the Landmark Conference Tournament with four-RBI, including an eight inning, game-tying homer against Susquehanna.
Collins was also a 2013 All-Landmark Conference First-Team honoree and finished 2014 in the top-five of four offensive categories. He posted a .375 batting average on the year to go along with 21 stolen bases (3rd), four homer runs (4th), a .456 on-base percentage (5th), and a .570 slugging percentage (5th). Collins recorded at least two hits in every game of the Landmark Conference Tournament and had at least one hit in seven of the last eight game of his collegiate career.
Martin is now a two-time All-Landmark Conference selection as the senior first-baseman is a threat at the plate as well as being one of the best defensive first baseman in the league. Martin finished the year with a .321 batting average, .400 on-base percentage, and racked up 23 RBI. He posted a .983 fielding percentage and also had a 1-1 record as well as two saves on the mound for USMMA.
Stadele nabbed his second straight All-Landmark Conference Second-Team spot after leading the league with six home runs in 2014. The junior outfielder also posted 27 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and a .487 slugging percentage. Stadele also was a key part of the Mariners bullpen, finishing the year with three saves and a 4.20 ERA.
