The Schaumburg Boomers, presented by Wintrust Community Banks, have announced the signing of Boston College product Gian Martellini.

Martellini was a four-year starter at Boston College. The Rhode Island native made 55 starts this year and hit .305 with three homers and 26 RBIs, tallying 20 multi-hit games. As a sophomore in 2017, Martellini slugged .474. Martellini played in nearly 200 games at Boston College. The right-handed hitter recorded five RBIs in a game against Duke in 2017.

Boston College reached the ACC Semifinals with wins over Louisville and Clemson. BC finished 31-27 this year.

Martellini will begin his professional career tonight when the Boomers welcome the Florence Freedom.
