Analyzing the 2015 Baseball Hall of Fame class
Wednesday January 7th, 2015

We have so many memories from Pedro Martinez's now-official Hall of Fame career. Throwing aside Don Zimmer. His 1999 season

We'll also never forget his Jheri curl.

Martinez's bouncy hairstyle was a longtime defining trait of the dominant pitcher, and he told TMZ Sports it would make a great addition to his Hall of Fame plaque. 


It's hard to imagine a Pedro plaque that doesn't include his signature locks. It would be impossible to capture all the excitement that surrounded Martinez in his prime, but immortalizing his Jheri curl is baseball's most sacred space would be a great way to capture the 1990s.
