Former Boise State Bronco Joe Martarano has been tearing it up playing minor league baseball.  The Chicago Cubs have promoted the Fruitland native to their low-a affiliate in South Bend Indiana.

He recently played for the Eugene Emeralds where he hit 366 in 41 at-bats and also had one home run and eight RBI's.

Martarano left the Boise State football team in March after playing both sports for the past three years, he would have most likely been the Broncos starting middle linebacker this season.
