Buck Martinez has been in and around professional baseball for nearly fifty years as a player, manager, and broadcaster. Currently the play-by-play announcer for the Toronto Blue Jays, Martinez has witnessed enormous change in the game he loves, as the game has morphed from a grassroots pastime to big business. In Change Up, Martinez offers his unique insights into how Major League Baseball might reconnect with its fanbase, how the clubs might train and prepare their players for their time in The Show, and how players might approach the sport in a time of sagging fan interest. Always entertaining, ever insightful, Martinez shares brilliant insights and inside pitches about summer’s favourite game.
