Prior to Saturday's Orioles-Yankees contest (GameTracker), former New York first baseman Tino Martinez received a plaque to be placed in the reasonably hallowed Monument Park at Yankee Stadium... 

And here's a close-up of the inscription ...

In addition to the facts noted above, Martinez batted .276/.347/.484 (113 OPS+) as a Yankee. His career postseason numbers aren't strong at all (.233/.321/.355 in 405 plate appearances, the vast majority of which came with the Yankees), but he indeed does have a few critical homers to his credit, as noted above. 

Martinez becomes Monument Park's 29th honoree, joining, most recently and among others, Mariano Rivera
