Let's all take a moment to remember the day a great player nearly lost his career, and certainly saw his Hall of Fame chances destroyed.

April 3, 1993. Edgar Martinez shreds his hamstring taking the turn around first base in Vancouver's B.C. Place.

He could still hit, oh, that's for sure. But his days in the field were done. And so he'll likely be getting into Cooperstown only with his paid admission.

Something to remember in the next couple of weeks, as spring training rolls to a close, and players are logging just a few final meaningless minutes before the real action starts.

Oh, and let's remember Edgar, just the way the Washington Legislature did last year:
