Victor Martinez’s Son Is A Superstar In The Making (Video)

victor jose martinezOur search for the next Victor Martinez may now be over, and interestingly enough, that search has take us to his son, Victor Jose Martinez.  Not only do they share the same name, but Victor Sr. and Victor Jr. also appear to share many of the same talents on the baseball diamond.  Those talents were put on display prior to Game 2 of the ALCS between the Detroit Tigers and the Texas Rangers, as Victor took Jose out onto the field for some batting practice.

Former Red Sox coach Terry Francona spoke a bit about Victor Jose, whom he got to know during Victor Martinez’s time in Boston.  Here are a few of the things that we learned about the 6-year-old:

– He enjoys eating and usually has food in his hands.

– He is a switch hitter.

– He is very comfortable walking around the clubhouse naked in a pair of shower shoes.

Yes, the last one is awfully creepy, but Francona figured he’d share that piece of information with us anyways.  Here is a look at Francona and Joe Buck talking about Victor Jose Martinez.
