Tino Martinez will be Marlins’ new hitting coach
- Updated: November 9, 2012
The Miami Marlins have announce that Tino Martinez, four-time World Series champion, will be their new hitting coach.
Martinez will replace last year’s hitting coach Eduardo Perez, who already has been hired as the Astros’ bench coach for next season. The Red Sox were also interested in Martinez to be their new hitting coach.
This is very good upgrade for the Fish as they bring championship experience to their club. Tino Martinez, 44, played in the major leagues for 16 seasons. Martinez finished with a career .271 batting average with 339 home runs and 1,271 RBI with the Yankees, Mariners, Cardinals and Rays.
After retiring in 2005, Tino Martinez has been the Yankees special assistant and was an analyst for the YES Network.
Here’s the Miami Marlins’ coaching staff as of now: Perry Hill (infield/first base), Joe Espada (third base), Reid Cornelius (bullpen coach) and obviously Tino Martinez (hitting coach).
