Description

The love between brothers is key to Matt Tavares's tale of Dominican pitcher Pedro Mart nez, from his days of throwing rocks at mangoes to his years as a major-league star. Before Pedro Mart nez pitched the Red Sox to a World Series championship, before he was named to the All-Star team eight times, before he 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. In a fitting homage to a modern day baseball star, the acclaimed author-illustrator examines both Pedro Mart nez's improbable rise to the top of his game and the power that comes from the deep bond between brothers.
