Dennis Martinez Booking Agent Details

Dennis Martinez, affectionately known as “El Presidente”, was the first Nicaraguan to play Major League Baseball. He spent 23 years in the majors playing for the Baltimore Orioles (1976-1986), Montreal Expos (1986-1993), Cleveland Indians (1994-1996), Seattle Mariners (1997) and Atlanta Braves (1998). Martinez was named an All-Star four times and led Major League Baseball in wins in 1981 and ERA in 1991. While playing for the Expos, Martinez pitched a perfect game on July 28, 1991 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, throwing 66 strikes out of 96 total pitches. In so doing, Martinez became the first player born in Latin America to accomplish the feat. He is a member of the Orioles Hall of Fame and Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.

Martinez was born on May 14, 1955 in Granada, Nicaragua and signed with Baltimore in 1973 for $3,000. He spent three years moving up the Orioles minor league system before making his MLB debut on September 14, 1976. After retiring, Martinez served as pitching coach for the minor league Palm Beach Cardinals, the bullpen coach for the Houston Astros and manager for the national baseball team of Nicaragua. A hero in his native country, the baseball stadium in the capital of Managua is called Dennis Martinez National Stadium.
