In 1982, the Seattle Mariners signed Edgar Martinez to a minor league contract and after 5 years working his way through the minors, Martinez made his major league debut for the Mariners. Martinez became the starting 3rd baseman for the Mariners in 1990 but before the 1993 season he tore his hamstring and was moved to designated hitter for the remainder of his career. Martinez continued to play as designated hitter until 2004 and is still the only designated hitter to win a batting title with a .356 average in the 95 season. Martinez was a 7x All-Star in his 14 year career but is best remembered for The Double he hit in the 11th inning of the 95 Division Series that sent the Mariners to their first AL Championship Series. Martinez was inducted into the Seattle Sports Hall of Fame and in 2004 became one of 5 players in MLB history to have a trophy named after them; the Edgar Martinez Award is awarded to the Leagues most outstanding designated hitter every year.
