Three Martinez Brothers to be Inducted into Albuquerque Pro Hall of Fame

Pedro, Ramon, and Jesus Martinez all played for the minor-league Albuquerque Dukes during 1988 through 1997, when they were farm-hands in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.  They will be inducted into the Albuquerque Professional Baseball Hall of Fame at a minor-league game on April 8.

Pedro Martinez is the most well-known of the three brothers, as he was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015.  He won three Cy Young Awards during his 18-year career in which he won 219 games and posted a 2.93 ERA, including five seasons as league-leader in ERA.  He was a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series championship team.

Ramon Martinez won 135 career games during his 14-year career. His best season was in 1990 when he posted a 20-6 record that included 12 complete games for the Los Angeles Dodgers.  He finished second in the voting for the National League Cy Young Award that season.

Jesus Martinez didn’t reach the majors like his brothers, but spent ten seasons in the minors, reaching the Triple-A level for the Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds.
