José Martínez is a man comprised of many captivating stories. His ten-year journey through the minors has often been given the spotlight, winning a minor league batting title and still not earning a call-up to the show. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Derrick Goold recently gave insight to Martínez’s personal life in an excellent piece detailing his love of his late father and his struggle to get his young son a visa to see Martínez play.
