It's official now: Pedro Martinez is a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Hundreds of fans chanted and waved the flag of the Dominican Republic, where the former Red Sox ace was born, as he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame Sunday.

Pedro, who wore a blue jacket with the Dominican flag on one shoulder and the American flag on the other, joined Randy Johnson, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio as the Class of 2015 took its place beside the more than 300 men who are already enshrined there.

WBUR's Alex Ashlock was in Cooperstown, N.Y. for the festivities.
