“Right now the Mariners are looking for the tie. They would take a fly ball. They would love a base hit into the gap and they can win it with Jr.’s speed. The stretch...and the 0-1 pitch on the way to Edgar Martinez......SWUNG ON AND LINED DOWN THE LEFT FIELD LINE FOR A BASE HIT. Here comes Joey... here is Jr to 3rd base; they gonna wave him in. The throw to the plate will be late. The Mariners are going to play for the American League Championship Series” - Dave Niehaus 1995
As a young kid in the 90s that snuck out of my room to watch this game, the DOUBLE will forever be engrained into my memory. To the player & szn that kept baseball alive in Seattle. Congrats Edgar!!

Congratulations 2019 HOF inductees! ⚾️💥💯
Welcome to Cooperstown, Edgar! One of my favorite players and a hitter who influenced me a ton when I was a young ballplayer.
Welcome to Cooperstown, Edgar! This shot is from the @mariners
HOF induction. From one Hall to another, congrats!
GAR COMPLETES THE COMEBACK!
Just 5 years ago Edgar was down at a brutal 25.2% percent of the vote. But this year, in his 10th and final year on the ballot, he has received 85.4% of the vote to get into the @baseballhall
Edgar, your long road to the Hall of Fame was not easy, but in many ways, it's fitting. Just like your playing career, your long road to the Hall of Fame was that of quiet and persistent excellence. Undrafted, overlooked, no national media attention; just season after season of pure hitting excellence as you slowly and quietly accumulated more great numbers and awards. Great numbers and awards that would eventually lead to MLB Commissioner Bud Selig renaming the annual Outstanding Designated Hitter Award the Edgar Martinez Outstanding Designated Hitter Award in 2004.
Congrats Edgar, you are right where you belong. Welcome to baseball immortality. #EdgarHOF #HOF2019 #Exce11ence #EdgarMartinez #HOFWKND #Seattle #Mariners @mariners @mlb
