Edgar Martínez, nicknamed "Gar" and "Papi", is a former Major League Baseball designated hitter and third baseman and current hitting coach of the Seattle Mariners. He is of Puerto Rican descent. He spent his entire 18-year Major League Baseball career with the Seattle Mariners. He is the cousin of Carmelo Martínez.
On December 19, 1982, the Seattle Mariners signed Martínez to a minor league contract. Martínez worked his way through the Mariners minor league system, making stops with the Chattanooga Lookouts and the Calgary Cannons. Martínez made his major league debut on September 12, 1987, and became a fixture in the Mariners' lineup in 1990, replacing Jim Presley at third base. He began his career as a third baseman and won an American League batting title in 1992, but then he tore his hamstring during an exhibition game at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, B.C. on an unzipped seam in the turf between first and second, just before the 1993 season, and never fully recovered.
Martínez became a full-time designated hitter in 1995. To date, he is the only designated hitter ever to have won a batting title, winning it in 1995 with a .356 average.
On August 9, 2004 Martínez announced his retirement, effective at the end of the season. During his career, Martínez was a Mariner fan favorite, playing his entire career with the team, and always being willing to sign autographs for fans.
In October 2004, following his retirement, the part of South Atlantic Street in Seattle adjoining Safeco Field was renamed Edgar Martínez Drive South. At his retirement ceremony, a portrait "featuring his high stepping batting style" painted by artist Michele Rushworth was presented to him by the Mariners.
