WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — This week’s Cardi’s Hometown Sports Hero is Hendricken’s Gian Martellini.

The reigning RI Gatorade Player of the Year has helped lead the three-time defending Division I champs to another perfect start, as they aim for the top seed in the playoffs.

Last week, the catcher joined a long list of former Hawk catchers to sign to play Division I baseball, choosing Boston College after initially committing to Vanderbilt.

Martellini is expected to join another special list of Hendricken alums in June, as he’s projected to be picked on day two of the Major League Draft.
