Baseball and ice cream are the perfect combination on a hot summer day.

Former Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez helped bring those two things together Tuesday when he handed out ice cream to fans in Copley Square in Boston. Martinez is part of the “Share the Love” campaign as a way to get closer to fans and interact with them.

Martinez, who identifies as a Bostonian, said he loves having the opportunity to let the people truly embrace him. To see Martinez playing ice cream man, check out the above video.
