"Seattle Mariner Edgar Martinez remains baseball's most anonymous star and dares not leave home without his credit card. He is the Billy Williams of his day, a little recognized performer, lost on a team that hasn't had a lot of success, toiling in relative obscurity, putting up big numbers nonetheless." - By Jim Bianchine in Baseball Digest (December 1995, 'Mariners' Edgar Martinez: An Unsung Batting Champion', Page 38)
