40-Year Wedding Anniversary for Former Oriole, Dennis Martinez

.

The current bullpen coach for the Houston Astros (and former Oriole pitcher) was married 40 years ago today ...... when he was 17 years-old.

I heard it on the broadcast of the Astros-Yankees game that today was the day.

I tried to dig up confirmation of the anniversary, and found this Sports Illustrated article from 1991, which doesn't verify the exact date, but does indeed confirm the fact that Martinez was married when he was 17 years-old, which would mean that it could have happened on April 29th of 1973 (Martinez was born on May 14th, 1955.)

"By the time he was 17, Martinez had studied engineering for a year at the National University in Managua, and was married to Luz, a fellow student from Granada."

Happy 40th anniversary, Denny. :)

Tippy was my favorite by far. It was so cool to see him around town too. I think I even played little league with his kids.

You probably did. I grew up down the street from him. His kids are a few years older than me, though, IIRC.

DENNY Martinez

Remember when they called him that when he first came up ???

Well, there is another 40-year anniversary for him today.

40 years ago, DENNY Martinez became the first native Nicaraguan ever to pitch in the Major Leagues.
