2016

2010

Martin's story is pure Hollywood: he played just one year of high school baseball and then worked in the construction industry for four years, pitching on weekends in a men's league, before winding up as a pro in the Mexican League after attending a tryout on a whim. Three years later, he's hitting 96 mph on a radar gun and getting attention from MLB clubs, eventually signing with the Nationals. If the fairy tale doesn't come crashing back down to reality in Triple-A, don't be surprised if Martin makes his highly improbable major league debut in 2010.
