Marty was born in Charleston, Illinois, he attended Charleston High School and earned his bachelor's and master's degrees at Eastern Illinois University. A member of the Eastern Illinois Panthers baseball team, he struck out 22 batters in a game.[2][3]

He was a 7th round draft by the California Angels in 1965 and played in the minor leagues with the Seattle Rainiers for two seasons before being promoted to the majors. He left the Angels via the 1968 Major League Baseball expansion draft and joined the Seattle Pilots, which later became the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970. In Milwaukee, Pattin finished with a 14–12 record and a 3.39 ERA in 1970, and was named an All-Star in 1971, when he finished with a 14–14 record and a 3.13 ERA.[4]

Pattin was part of a ten-player blockbuster trade that sent him, Tommy Harper, Lew Krausse and minor-league outfielder Pat Skrable to the Red Sox for George Scott, Jim Lonborg, Ken Brett, Billy Conigliaro, Joe Lahoud and Don Pavletich on October 10, 1971.[5] He won 32 games in two seasons with the Red Sox, including a no-hit bid foiled in 1972, when A's Reggie Jackson hit a single off him with one out in the ninth inning.[6] According to fellow pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee, Pattin had a habit of throwing up after the first inning of nearly every game he pitched with the Red Sox.[7]

Sent to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for Dick Drago on October 24, 1973,[8] Marty divided his playing time between starting and relieving. He was named American League pitcher of the month twice during the 1975 campaign, in June as a starter and in September as a reliever. He retired after being granted free agency following 1980 season.[4]

After Marty's retirement as a player, he remained involved with the sport as a coach. He was the head coach of the University of Kansas baseball team from 1982 to 1987.[9] Pattin died in his sleep while visiting friends in his hometown of Charleston, Illinois on October 3, 2018.[10][11]
