Summary Martinez was a star batter for the Seattle Mariners for 18 seasons. He made the difficult decision at only 11 to remain behind in Puerto Rico with his grandparents ... attending school and then working multiple jobs until a chance Mariners try-out at age 20 changed everything. ...Martinez shares these stories and more with candor, humility, and wit. Highlights include the memorable 1995 and 2001 seasons, ... playing with stars like Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr., and Alex Rodriguez, and life after retirement as a family man, social advocate, and Mariners hitting coach. Martinez even offers practical insight into the mental side of baseball and his training regimen, detailing how he taught himself to see the ball better than so many before and after him. He details how he overcame an eye condition [strabismus] that should have made playing baseball impossible.-- From jacket.
