Former Major League Baseball player Tino Martinez was known to be one who thrived on pressure.

During his career with Seattle, the Yankees twice, St. Louis and Tampa Bay, who would always come up with clutch hits.

His career stats showed he had a nice career hitting .271 with 339 homers and 1,271 RBI’s.

Martinez was named the hitting coach for the Miami Marlins for the 2013 season, replacing Eduardo Perez.

Apparently as the hitting coach of the Marlins, Martinez could not handle the pressure of working with and helping young players on a losing team.

Martinez resigned his position just hours after complaints by players about him verbally abusing them became public.

The allegations included him physically abusing Derek Dietrich several months before the resignation. Martinez’s behavior in the clubhouse was reported to also include verbal attacks towards other Marlins’ players, Justin Ruggiano and Chris Valaika and minor leaguer Matt Downs.

Martinez was in his first season as an MLB coach.
