#11 Edgar Martinez - "Gar" - 9" x 12" acrylic on paper. The Gar could flat out hit. The only full-time DH so far to every win a batting title (1995 .356). He hit .571 in the 1995 ALDS vs the Yankees and was on base 18 times in 5 games. In game 4 he hit a grand salami in the 8th inning with the game tied 6-6. And in game 5 - down 5-4 in the 11th - doubled off of Jack McDowell to score Junior from 1st and win it for the Mariners. One of my favorite baseball moments. Other 11's I considered - Barry Larkin, Bill Freehan, and Luis Aparicio. One fo my Favorite Braves wore number 11 - Darrell (Howdy Doody) Evans. On to #10
