NYY: 1950 - 1957
Had as much "Yankee Pride" as any player or manager to wear pinstripes and he implanted his own fierce desire to win in his teams. Played an integral part in four World Series in the 50's as a player, and added another ring managing the Yankees in 1977. His .333 lifetime series batting average is fourth with at least 75 AB on the all-time series list. Combative and daring, Martin was a brilliant baseball strategist and a legend in Yankee history.
Number retired in 1986
