Yankee Stadium Legacy: #79 Tino Martinez (Again)

Tino Martinez was a fan favorite in the Bronx after joining the Yankees in 1996, replacing Don Mattingly. He was a part of the Yankees string of dominance of World Series wins and appearances that really brought the game back to life in the Bronx. Tino's second season in pinstripes in 1997 was arguably his best as he posted monster numbers and career highs with 44 home runs and 141 RBI's while being named a starter in the MLB All Star Game, also winning a Silver Slugger Award and finished second in the American League MVP voting.

79 days until Yankees Opening Day
