#35 Dennis Martinez

RELAXED : set or being at rest or at ease 

"Bass sets... and sets...  and sets again..." 
- from Angels in the Outfield

His full name is Jose Dennis (Emilia) Martinez.

But he goes by El Presidente.

Played 11 years for Baltimore
8 for Montreal
3 for Cleveland
1 for Seattle and
1 for Atlanta.

That adds up to 23 Big League years Kiddos!

Pitched a perfect game in 1991.

He was the last pitcher ever to pitch to Kirby Puckett - his wild pitch broke Pucketts jaw.

Had a hot dog named after him at Olympic Stadium.
