Carlos Martinez is enthusiastic, fun-loving, and friendly. This has not just made him popular with us as the resident VEB darling, but also popular in the Cardinals clubhouse. Friendship knows no bounds, and Carlos will not let something like a silly language barrier keep him from making new friends with his new teammate Sueng Hwan Oh of Korea.
Don't forget to help your favorite Birdo by donating to his foundation, Tsunami Waves. Proceeds go to help children in the St. Louis area and in the Dominican Republic.
