The New York Yankees Give Tino Martinez a Job

The New York Yankees are very good about taking care of and honoring one of their own. They did so this offseason when they gave jobs to Eric Chavez and Hideki Matsui and now the team is offering a position to another former member of the team in Tino Martinez. Martinez, who was honored with a plaque inside Monument Park in 2014, is back with the club as a minor league instructor.

Martinez will be at the team’s minor league camp until it ends this weekend and is expected to continue the role throughout the 2015 season. Martinez was part of four World Series championship teams and five American League pennants from 1996-2001. Martinez was also the Miami Marlins hitting coach in 2013 until he resigned after an altercation with Marlins players.

Welcome back to the family.
