In the “who knew?” department, the Mets have the 19-year-old son of ace Pedro Martinez (also named Pedro Martinez), in their Dominican Republic training camp this year, where he went 0-1 with a 3.14 ERA in 10 games in the summer league.
Who knew that Pedro had a 19-year-old son? Isn’t Pedro only 35? That would mean he had a son when he was 15 or 16 years old!
As a veteran Pedro watcher, I’m amazed that I somehow never knew he had a son. Am I the only one who didn’t know? Was this some sort of dirty secret in Pedro’s closet all these years? Who is this boy’s mother? Google doesn’t seem to have any knowledge about Pedro Martinez having a son until these latest articles in 2007!
