Pedro Martinez is one of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball.

He's a Hall of Famer, an eight time All-Star, he's won three Cy Young Awards and, most importantly, he was on the 2004 Boston Red Sox team that ended their 86 year championship drought.

Maine children's book author Matt Tavares is an avid baseball fan and decided to make Martinez the subject of his latest book, Growing Up Pedro.
