1993 Studio Carlos Martinez

Hobby is music: Presumably listening to music, though perhaps he played as well.
Favorite sports announcer is Dick Vitale: He must have liked college basketball.
Favorite players as a kid were Roberto Clemente and Tony Armas: Martinez was Venezuelan, and Armas was one of the first Venezuelan stars in the major leagues. Clemente of course was a hero to ballplayers across Latin America.
Might have been a doctor if he hadn’t been an athlete: Martinez did not go into medicine after his playing career.
Pet peeve is politics: Seems like everyone’s pet peeve these days.
Post-playing career: Martinez died at the age of 40 in 2006, after a long battle with cancer.
