PHOTO 71 - TOMBSTONE OF BILLY MARTIN - Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Mount Pleasant, NY

One ... Two .... Three Strikes You're Out ...... Ok, today is the third day for a baseball player tombstone. Billy Martin was a great Yankee player and manager and his tombstone reflects it. He is buried only a few feet from Babe Ruth and his stone is lovely. His number ("1") flanks both sides of the monument. There is also one of his famous quotes and a lovely engraving of St. Jude. A beautiful stone and a fitting tribute to a great baseball man.
