Description
Now in a Spanish-language edition Matt Tavares's tale of Dominican pitcher Pedro Martinez, from his days of throwing rocks at mangoes to his years as a major-league star.

Before Pedro Martinez was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, before he pitched the Red Sox to a World Series championship, before he was named to the All-Star team eight times and won the Cy Young three times, he was a kid from a place called Manoguayabo in the Dominican Republic. Pedro loved baseball more than anything, and his older brother Ramon was the best pitcher he d ever seen. He d dream of the day he and his brother could play together in the major leagues and here, Matt Tavares tells the story of how that dream came true.
