There Will Be Another Pedro Martinez in Pro Baseball

Pedro Martinez is one of the most popular players in recent times in the Major Leagues.  He was a Hall of Fame player and is still active in the game as a baseball analyst.

Now there will be another Pedro Martinez in the game, his son Pedro Jr.  The Detroit Tigers announced they have signed the younger Martinez, a Dominican prospect, during the international player signing period.

The 17-year-old is a third baseman, unlike his father and two uncles (Ramon and Jesus)who also pitched professionally.

The elder Martinez agreed with his son’s signing on the condition that the Tigers would allow Pedro Jr. to finish high school.
