In honor of his election to the Hall of Fame yesterday, Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo shared a handful of photos from his archive featuring Pedro Martinez; including the above pic of Pedro with his brother Ramon from 1993. Go here to check out more photos from him. He even shares some shots of Randy Johnson; who was a student and photographer for the school paper at USC before turning pro.

"I can only say that there's been a lot of great players throughout history that have had to wait their turn," Piazza said last month. "Joe DiMaggio had three ballots. Yogi Berra had three ballots. And that's part of the process.
"For me, it's not really my place, I feel, to start campaigning. I can only say that I'm proud of my work and I'm proud of my career. I'll put my numbers against a lot of players in history, and I feel that's all I can do."
- Via Mark Langill at Dodger Insider, "Pedro Martinez and the Dodgers: What might have been …"
- Via Mike Bauman at MLB.com, "Pedro's lofty accomplishments belied his small stature."
"That was the result of the negativity around me, telling me, 'No, you can't,' when I knew I could," Martinez said Tuesday. "That transformed my mind and my body."
