Llegar a Ser Pedro
Cómo los hermanos Martínez llegaron hasta las grandes ligas desde un pequeño pueblo en República Dom

author: Matt Tavares

Antes de que Pedro Martínez fuese elegido al Salon de la Fama del Béisbol, antes de que hiciera posible que los Medias Rojas ganaran la Serie Mundial, antes de que fuera seleccionado ocho veces para formar parte del equipo de la Liga de las Estrellas, antes de que recibiera el Premio Cy Young tres veces, Pedro era un niño que nació en Manoguayabo, un pequeño pueblo de la República Dominicana. Pedro amaba el béisbol más que nada en el mundo, y Ramón, su hermano mayor, era el mejor lanzador que él había visto jamás. Pedro soñaba que llegaría un día en el que su hermano y él jugarían juntos en las Grande Ligas.
Esta es la historia de cómo ese sueño se hizo realidad.

Before Pedro Martínez was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, before he pitched the Red Sox to a World Series championship, before he was named to the All-Star team eight times and won the Cy Young three times, he was a kid from a place called Manoguayabo in the Dominican Republic. Pedro loved baseball more than anything, and his older brother Ramon was the best pitcher he’d ever seen. He’d dream of the day he and his brother could play together in the major leagues—and here, Matt Tavares tells the story of how that dream came true.
Available in a Spanish-language edition! Matt Tavares’s tale of Dominican pitcher Pedro Martínez, from his days of throwing rocks at mangoes to his years as a major-league star.
