Tino Martinez resigned as the Miami Marlins' hitting coach hours after complaints by players that he verbally abused them became public.
Martinez apologized for his behavior, saying he got in trouble for comments to players he intended as constructive criticism.
Pete Rose sat in the World Series. So did Reggie Jackson, Barry Zito and Paul O'Neill. Tim Lincecum lost his spot in the San Francisco Giants' rotation this October, and Jose Valverde forfeited his role as the Detroit Tigers' closer.
The young Marlins rank last in the majors in runs, home runs, batting and slugging, and the 45-year-old Martinez said he became frustrated as players struggled.
"It has been building for a few days," he said. "I didn't know this was going to come out publicly. When this came out, I thought it was the right thing to do."
