Pedro Martinez
Petie's best years were in Boston, and I was there for most of them. I also got to see him pitch for the Dodgers and the Mets, as well as the Expos in the 1996 All Star Game.

Highlights were May 6, 2000, when he struck out 17 and walked only 1, but lost a 1-0 complete game, and May 18, 2002, when he pitched an immaculate first inning (striking out the side on 9 pitches.) I had amazing seats at Fenway Park for both!

Hey, Steve -

Good to hear from you!

Yeah, I had the foresight way back when to save my ticket stubs. I've got all but a couple for the 1,400+ games I've been to. I used Baseball Reference to figure out who played for whom and when, then crossed that against my tix. A fair amount of work, but it was fun, too. Glad I did it.
