J D Martinez: Birth, Parents, Siblings & Education
J D Martinez was born Julio Daniel Martinez in the city of Miami, Florida on August 21, 1987. He is of Cuban origin, the youngest of his parents’ six children, and the only boy.
Martinez received all of the attention in the house as a child because he was the only son and the youngest in the family.
He began playing ball at the age of four, first with basketball and then with baseball. His father always took him to baseball games on weekends, and watching players hit the ball fascinated him so much that he resolved to hit the ball himself one day.
His father encouraged him to play baseball to keep him away from the vices of the neighborhood.
He soon found a mentor in Paul Casanova, who tutored and guided him through the rules of baseball. Martinez usually spent the rest of his day after school at Paul’s house playing baseball.
His mother was occasionally concerned about his baseball obsession, but that “obsession” has now paid off.
Florida Martinez was a member of the baseball team at Flanagan High School. After graduating from high school in 2006, he was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 2006 Major League Baseball draft, but he declined the offer and went on to play for the Sharks at Nova Southwestern University. He was named All-Sunshine State Conference baseball player twice during his college career.
