Pedro Martinez at Fenway Park was an event. The 1999 All-Star Game was no different.

He struck out five of the six batters he faced, including the first four, and became the first pitcher to begin the All-Star Game by striking out the side.

Martinez struck out Barry Larkin, Larry Walker, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire and Jeff Bagwell — four of the past five National League MVPs and five players who hit a combined 2,222 career home runs.

Martinez was the best pitcher in baseball: 23-4, 2.07 ERA, 313 strikeouts in 213.1 innings. He won the AL Cy Young Award, the All-Star Game and two playoff games.


X. BASEBALL IS BACK | 1981
