Victor Martinez Stats

Victor Martinez was born on Saturday, December 23, 1978, in Ciudad Bolivar, Bolivar, Venezuela. Martinez was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 10, 2002, with the Cleveland Indians. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Victor Martinez baseball stats page.

"It made all the sense in young Victor Martinez's world to call his mother and tell her he was coming home after learning the Indians wanted him to switch positions from shortstop to catcher. Instead, Margot Coromoto Martinez calmed down her sobbing son and politely told him, 'Just try it first'. 'I'd been a shortstop since I was 7', Martinez said. These days, Martinez has his mother to thank for being one of the best young catchers in the major leagues." - Sportswriter Stephanie Storm in the Akron Beacon Journal (01/28/2005)
