9780544279339: Pedro

A bold, no-holds-barred memoir from one of the most dominant and dynamic pitchers to ever play the game

Before Pedro Martinez was the eight-time All Star, three-time Cy Young Award winner, and World Series champion, before stadiums full of fans chanted his name, he was just a little kid from the Dominican Republic who sat under a mango tree and dreamed of playing pro ball. Now in Pedro, the charismatic and always colorful pitcher opens up for the first time to tell his remarkable story.

Martinez entered the big leagues a scrawny power pitcher with a lightning arm who they said wasn’t “durable” enough, who they said was a punk. But what they underestimated about Pedro Martinez was the intensity of the fire inside. Like no one before or since, Martinez willed himself to become one of the most intimidating pitchers to have ever played the game.

In Pedro we relive it all in Technicolor brightness, from his hardscrabble days in the minor leagues clawing for respect; to his early days in lonely Montreal, where he first struggled with the reputation of being a headhunter; to his legendary run with the Red Sox when start after start he dazzled with his pitching genius; to his twilight years on the mound as he put the finishing touches on a body of work that made him an icon.

Bold, outspoken, intimate in its details, and grand in ego and ambition, this new memoir by one of baseball’s most enigmatic figures will entertain and inspire generations of fans to come.

From the Back Cover:

Later, after I had proven I could get batters out as well as anyone else in the game, I switched to subtler forms of motivation. Skeptics who doubted that my slender body could withstand the rigors of starting, coaches who belittled, berated, or fed off of me like leeches, jealous teammates who wanted to fight me, batters who charged me because they mistook my need to pitch inside for a desire to knock their heads off, a baseball establishment that tried to slow my entry into the rarefied air as one of the elite pitchers of all time, rude media members who probed where they shouldn t have and harped on the negative my God, baseball was a noisy, teeming jungle. from Pedro"
