Pedro Martinez was dominant on the mound. It turns out he's not so bad on stage, either.
Martinez was among those honored at a recent celebration of Boston sports greats.
The Sports Museum in Boston has held an annual gala known as The Tradition for the past 11 summers, raising money and paying respect to top local athletes for their contributions on and off the field.
This year the institution honored six athletes: Robert Parish, Rodney Harrison, Pedro Martinez, Jeremy Jacobs, Chris Ernst and Alexi Lalas. The monumental figures spoke to a crowd at TD Garden on June 27, looking back at their careers.
In this video, Martinez recalls one of the most dominant periods by any single player in the history of baseball. He covers a variety of topics, including the steroids era and the top moments of his career.
In Part I of the interview, Martinez talks about the city of Boston, his memories of the fans and the local community.
