Former Red Sox pitching ace Pedro Martinez was back in Boston this week. Martinez was honored at the 11 annual ceremony 'The Tradition' at New England's Sports Museum, where he declared himself "a Bostonian for life."

Martinez won the Cy Young Award three times, and pitched seven seasons for the Red Sox, including in 2004 when the Sox won their first world series in 86 years. Only A Game producer Karen Given caught up with Martinez for a very brief chat after the ceremony.
