Pedro In Hall Of Fame With Over 91% Of Vote

Hall Of Famer Pedro Martinez
Perhaps the greatest pitcher in Red Sox history was elected to the Hall of Fame today with over 91% of the vote. Pedro Martinez will be inducted into MLB's National Baseball Hall Of Fame next July with a Red Sox cap. In his brilliant career, Pedro posted a 2.93 ERA with 3,154 strikeouts and a 1.05 WHIP. His three seasons of 1999-2001 were arguably the most dominant in MLB history. As one who was there at the 1999 All-Star Game in Fenway Park, his performance against the iron of the NL lineup was truly awesome. Interestingly, on MLB Network today, Pedro said that the toughest hitter he ever faced was Edgar Martinez, "He made me throw at least thirteen fastballs to get him out". Congratulations, Pedro!
