Carlos Martinez, RIP

Former major league infielder Carlos Martinez died last week in his native Venezuela, at the age of 40. Martinez was responsible for one of the more entertaining moments in baseball history: It was Martinez who, on May 26, 1993, hit the ball that bounced off Jose Canseco's head and into the stands for a home run.
