Probably the most accomplished baseball player ever to come out of Elk Grove, Buck Martinez, will speak at the Elk Grove High School Baseball Booster's Crab Feed on Sat. Feb. 11 at the SES Hall. Tickets are $45 and available at the high school or at www.leaguelineup.com/herdbaseball.
Martinez played professionally for the Milwaukee Brewers and was a catcher on the "Harvey Wallbangers" team that played in the 1983 World Series. He went on to manage the Toronto Blue Jays and the USA Olympic baseball team.
Currently, he's an announcer with TNT Sports.
