Russell Martin Home Run Contest

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Last week James Loney beat Martin to the punch and launched not one but two home runs on the road trip. Alas Coltrane is still sitting with zero home runs so we need to help get him going. This is a brief six game home stand against some very pedestrian pitching. You may only pick from one of the games on the current homestand.

In Martins young career his first home run of the year occurred on:

2006 - May 7th, 3rd game ever

2007 - April 3rd, 2nd game of season

2008 - April 15th, 14th game

Martin's bat has come alive in May so we aren't complaining, we are just having fun with it.
