Pedro Martinez: I Helped Recruit David Ortiz To Boston Red Sox (Video)


Two of the greatest pitchers in Boston Red Sox history were inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame on Thursday at Fenway Park.

Pedro Martinez and Roger Clemens, in addition to Nomar Garciaparra and broadcaster Joe Castiglione, composed the impressive Class of 2014, and NESN’s Gary Striewski caught up with Pedro to talk about being enshrined in the Red Sox Hall of Fame.

Martinez only endeared himself to Red Sox nation even further, as he told the story of how he helped recruit David Ortiz to the Boston Red Sox — who were in need of a first baseman at the time — after running into him at a restaurant in the Dominican Republic and learning that the Minnesota Twins had just released him.
