In an interview with MLB Network Radio, Pedro Martinez talks about the legend that Clayton Kershaw and his amazing career on and off the field.
Martinez was an amazing pitcher in his own right, especially between the years of 1997 and 2006 when he was dominating opposing batters with one of the highest strikeout rates in history. He’s the owner of three Cy Young awards and is most famous for helping bring a world series to the Boston Red Sox, ending a 86 year old championship drought.
“I did some unbelievable things . . but this kid seems to be getting better than I was, even better than Sandy Koufax, more exciting than Roger Clemens and Greg Maddux!”
Make sure to take a listen to the two and half minute segment as Martinez is really giving Kershaw praise on and off the field, especially for Kershaw’s contributions to charities and those who are less fortunate.
