Marlins second-round draft pick Joe Dunand has had plenty of coaching and instruction during his path to pro baseball. That comes with the territory when you are Alex Rodriguez's nephew. In addition to soaking in advice from A-Rod, Dunand has learned from great coaches at some of the top amateur programs in the country (Gulliver Prep in Miami in high school and N.C. State in college). But there's also a hitting instructor in the Bronx who helped Dunand along the way. Jose Martinez, a youth coach in New York City, helped Dunand with his swing as a young teen and has helped countless other young players perfect their swing. Martinez, a former scout who runs The Art of Hitting program, is proud to see Dunand reach his goal of playing professionally. "I'm so happy for him," said Martinez, who has also worked with MLBer Pedro Alvarez.
