Sy Scholfield quotes J.R. Martinez, "Full of Heart: My Story of Survival, Strength, and Spirit" (New York: Hyperion, 2012), p. 5: "On June 14, 1983, she gave birth to me at the LSU Medical Center in Shreveport;" p. 174: "The tattoo you've more likely seen on me is the watch on my left wrist . . . 'And by the way, out of curiosity, what time of day was I born?' 'It was two thirty in the afternoon,' she told me. I was born and reborn at the same time."

Martinez reveals the same info about his time of birth in an online interview: Kit Hoover, "J.R. Martinez Explains His Watch Tattoo: What's The Significance?"
