A happy belated birthday goes out to Seattle Mariners outfielder Leonys Martin, who celebrated his 29th year of life on Monday. I did not get him a present because there's no way to top what the Mariners surprised Martin with on his special day.
They got him a live mariachi band, which followed him around all day at spring training.

They even followed Martin into center field as he shagged some flyballs. That's some outstanding dedication.
It's worth pointing out that Martin is Cuban, so he may not fully understand why his teammates went with a staple of Mexican cultural heritage to honor him on his birthday. Also, he was given a gigantic sombrero -- another symbol of Mexican culture -- to wear around, so maybe his teammates don't know him as well as they think they do.
Either way, it's the thought that counts and this thought was tremendous.
