Who Is Oakland A’s Hitting Coach Eric Martins?
Martins was drafted by the A’s in 1994. It took 26 years of grinding through the Minors, but he finally secured a big league gig. After slashing 276/.359/.376 over seven seasons in the Minors and never getting the call up to The Show, in 2007, he reunited with the A’s as a scout and that’s where his real baseball journey began, his calling as a teacher of the sport.
