Russell Martin Biography
Catcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Russell Martin was born February 15, 1983 in East York, Ontario, Canada. Martin has broken the record for stolen bases by a catcher with the Dodgers.
Martin's career as a Major League Baseball player began in 2006. During that year, he hit .282. Convinced they had a find, the Dodgers stationed him in 2007 as their starting catcher, where he has been the past two seasons. During Martin's three years in the majors, the Dodgers have made two postseason berths.
On May 2007, Martin made his debut on the National League All-Star Game ballot at fourth place, despite leading National League catchers in most offensive categories and matching or exceeding ballot rivals in defense. By June 26, he had made up a 140,100 vote deficit from ballot-leading Paul Lo Duca, the Dodgers' former catcher now playing for the Mets, and was 214,114 votes ahead of him. That same month he broke the Dodgers' franchise record for single-season steals by a catcher set by John Roseboro in 1962. On July 1 it was announced that Martin finished in first place in All-Star Game voting, leading Lo Duca by 296,948 votes. He became the first ever Canadian born catcher to start the All-Star Game.
At the end of the 2007 season, he was awarded with the National League Gold Glove Award and the Silver Slugger award.
