December 7th, 1995

Tino Martinez Traded to Yankees




Obviously a good move for Tino, despite concerns of how fans would react to his replacing Don Mattingly at first base; Tino is now hugely popular in New York and won four series, five pennants and six division titles in seven years with the Yankees. On the whole though, December Seventh--Franklin Roosevelt's "day which will live in infamy"--proved quite a day for Tino in 1995. First, of course, he discovered he was officially switching coasts and teams. Martinez also decided to make himself at home in New York and signed an extension with the Yankees. As if all that wasn't enough, Martinez's wife also gave birth to the couple’s third child, Victoria.

After all the activity of
December 7th, 1995, I think it is safe to say we all know what Martinez did on December 8th: Got some sleep.
