I had the opportunity to ride along with three-time Cy Young award winner and Boston Red Sox all-time great, Pedro Martinez, yesterday as he visited Furnace Brook Middle School in Marshfield, Massachusetts. 

Unlike last year’s visit to Furnace Brook when we blew a tire on the side of the highway with then Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia on board, this year’s ride was smooth. The event itself was just as fun as it was last year. 

Pedro is a great subject for photos, but also a very genuine person. He was totally willing with his time and insistent on meeting as many of the students as he possibly could.
