Season 1 pick#4

With the 4th pick The New York "Pride of the Yankees" chose Al Martinez. Al has been a blessing for the Yankees so far in his career. Season 1 he was an All-Star and a Silver Slugger C. Season 2 he was an All-Star despite jumping from Rookie ball to AA ball. He added an All Star appearance in season 3 in AAA. He made his ML debut in season 4. He promptly won rookie of the year, made the all star team, won Silver Slugger C, and topped it off with the Home Run Derby crown. With out a doubt, he could have went higher in the draft, but Domi is glad he did not. He will be a huge factor for many, many seasons to come.
