Cubs bench coach Davey Martinez recalled the late Dallas Green pushing him one winter after Martinez had a ton of at-bats in various leagues that season. He estimated he had something like 700 at-bats and just wanted to go home. Green told him to go get "900 at-bats" in winter ball leading to Martinez making the Cubs roster soon after. Martinez: "Could be hard at times but you respected that. Just a good overall guy."
