Stephens County High athlete Ethan Martin has been selected 15th overall by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2008 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
The 6-3, 200-pounder was drafted as a third baseman/right-handed pitcher. He also plays quarterback for the Stephens County football team.
According to ESPN's Keith Law, "Martin is a two-way player. He came into the year as a potential first-rounder as a third baseman, but he didn't hit well at the beginning. He likes to pitch, and he shut down American Plantation H.S. (the team of prospects Eric Hosmer and Adrian Nieto) in February. He throws 91-95 mph. He has a chance to be an above-average bat at third base, and he obviously has a plus arm. I would be surprised if the Dodgers kept well at beginn. Likes to pitch. Shut down Hosmer and Nieto team in a feb. turn 91-95 off the mound. Chance to be an above abverage bat at third . Plus arm. Good athlete. Would be surprise if keep him as a pitcher because they tend to prefer guys with polish. He has arm strength, but not much polish as a pitcher."
