NEW YORK ó Tino Martinez was honored by the New York Yankees on Saturday with a plaque to be placed in Monument Park.
Martinezís tenure in pinstripes was celebrated during a 17-minute ceremony on the field before the Yankees played the Baltimore Orioles.
A clutch hitter with power, Martinez helped the Yankees win four World Series championships and five AL pennants from 1996-2001. He returned for a seventh season with New York in 2005 and finished his Yankees career with a .276 batting average, 192 homers and 739 RBI.
Traded from Seattle to New York in December 1995, Martinez eagerly took on the unenviable task of replacing captain Don Mattingly at first base and soon became a fan favorite himself.
