Victor Martinez, the embattled designated hitter for the Detroit Tigers, hit a massive home run Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers. But Martinez injured himself on the swing. In fact, he was in so much pain that he couldn’t even trot around the bases and had to walk part of the way home.
But Martinez showed plenty of grit by staying in the game and vowed also to return for Game 4 on Wednesday. In fact when asked if he was positive about playing, Martinez channeled his inner Yogi and said, “The only way that I don’t play tomorrow is if I wake up and I’m dead.”
I love this game!
