Pedro Martinez Followed in His Brother’s Footsteps

Recent Hall of Fame inductee Pedro Martinez owes much of his baseball career to his older brother Ramon Martinez.

Ramon preceded Pedro to the majors by four years, making his major league debut as a 20-year-old in 1988.  In 1990, Ramon was a 20-game winner for the Los Angeles Dodgers, finishing as runner-up for the Cy Young Award in the National League.  He posted six more seasons with double-digit wins for the Dodgers before finishing his career with a 135-88 won-lost record.

Pedro made his major league debut in 1992 with the Dodgers, where he pitched alongside his brother.  However, Pedro would go on to make his name in history by pitching for the Montreal Expos and Boston Red Sox earning three Cy Young Awards.  Pedro would be a teammate of his brother again with the Red Sox in 2000.
