HOF shares up-close look at Pedro Martinez' plaque


Pedro Martinez is being enshrined into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown on Sunday.

But for those who couldn't make it to the event, the Hall of Fame's Twitter account gave Red Sox fans a close look at their former ace's plaque.

It reads: 

Featuring an electric arsenal of pitches that vanquished batters during an era of high octane offense. The fiery righty from the Dominican Republic owned the inside part of the plate with an exploding fastball and confounding changeup. Led league in ERA five times and strikeouts three times en route to three Cy Young Awards and eight All-Star selections. The first pitcher to retire with 3,154 strikeouts in fewer than 3,000 innings. Won 219 games with an astounding .687 winning percentage. Posted 117-37 record in Boston, helping to lead Red Sox to 2004 World Series Championship.
