College Corner: Looking at the ‘Players to Watch’ for all Maryland four-year colleges

Christian Torres, INF, University of Maryland, Baltimore County

Sophomore/Miami, Fla./ Bats/Throws: R/R

Torres is coming off an eventful freshman campaign that earned him America East All-Conference Second Team honors. He hit .276 with two home runs and 30 RBIs. Torres saved his best performance for the America East Tournament. In a 9-0 win over Albany University, Torres went 1-3 with two runs scored, a homer, and four RBIs. Following a successful season, Torres was named the America East Rookie of the Year.

UMBC’s (23-24 overall, 11-9 conference) record wasn’t indicative of its success last season. After a walk-off win against Stony Brook University to end the regular season, the Retrievers rode momentum to their first America East Conference title. They went undefeated in their conference tournament and earned their third NCAA Tournament appearance. UMBC hopes Torres can lead the Retrievers and replace the production of the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player Hunter Dolshun who graduated last spring. The Retrievers are 1-3 so far this season.
