Playing career

During the course of his career, Marshall played first base, third base, outfield and designated hitter.

As a minor league player, Marshall showed considerable promise. He had 24 home runs and 22 steals for Class-A Lodi at in the Cal League in 1979.[1] He won the league's Triple Crown in 1981, when he hit .373 with 34 homers, 21 stolen bases, and 137 RBIs for the Albuquerque Dukes, a Triple A club in the Pacific Coast League.[1]

He is one of only two LA Dodger minor leaguers to have two 20/20 minor league seasons (Joc Pederson did it in 2013 and 2014).[1]

In his first major league at bat against the San Francisco Giants in September 1981, he smashed a line drive over the right field wall at Dodger Stadium that bounced sharply off a stairwell and back onto the field. Jack Clark, playing right field, quickly picked up the ball and threw it back to the infield; due to the speed and trajectory of the ball, and Clark's routine actions, the umpires ruled it a double. Clark apparently admitted to Marshall later that it was a homer.

He was elected to the National League All-Star team in 1984.

Marshall has two World Series rings from the Dodgers' 1981 and 1988 World Series, in which he hit a homer in Game 2.

Marhall saw limited action in 2002 with the Independent Northern League Schaumburg, Il Flyers.

He was the field manager, team president and general manager of the Yuma Scorpions, of the Golden Baseball League from 2007 to 2008. After working as manager and team president of the Chico Outlaws during the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
