The Kind of Coach, Mentor You'd Love to Have
In 1951, Ed Martin excelled as a baseball star at North Carolina A&T before joining the Philadelphia Stars in the Negro American Baseball League. He played against Hank Aaron and many other future Major League stars as a member of the Cincinnati Reds system before a career-ending shoulder injury forced him to retire.
Born in Allentown, PA in 1925, Martin earned his bachelor’s degree from North Carolina A&T University, and his M.A. from Temple University.
