Mike Martin

Mike Martin, College of Education alumnus and head coach of the Florida State Baseball Team, was honored by Tallahassee Memorial Hospital for a donation he and his family made to benefit the Children’s Center COPE Program. COPE, which stands for Creating Opportunities for Parent Empowerment, is an evidence-based program established in 2012 to benefit both the Tallahassee Memorial Children’s Center and the Newborn Intensive Care Unit.  In honor of this generous donation, the Tallahassee Memorial Children’s Center Playroom was named “The Mike Martin Family Playroom.”

Martin graduated from the College of Education in 1966 with a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education. As an undergraduate, he played for the Florida State Baseball Team and later went on to become assistant coach and then head coach. He is one of only four baseball coaches in NCAA history to win 1,500 games at the Division I level. In 2007, he was inducted in the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. As part of the FSU Alumni Association centennial, Martin was named to FSU’s list of 100 distinguished graduates in 2009.
