Currently, Marty is the manager for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in the Japanese Central League so I might try to send him a TTM request there next season since he has an Orioles Crown card. Has anyone ever tried to sent a TTM request to Japan? I'm not really sure how to do it so any suggestions will be appreciated.
The O's drafted him in the '89 Rule V draft from the Reds after he had appeared in 26 games for the Reds over the '88-'89 seasons. Marty played in only 9 games for the Orioles in April and May of the 1990 season but he appeared as a pinch runner and hitter, DH, and at 2B and 3B over those games. That's some pretty solid diversity for having played in that few games. However, he didn't make it into another Major League game after his time with the Orioles.
After he retired from playing in 1995, he stayed involved with baseball by becoming a manager in the Pirates and Indians organizations. As I mentioned earlier, he is currently managing in the Japanese Central league and has been there since 2006. And now, we know more about Mr. Brown than you ever thought you could!
