“Fans of Pedro Martinez waved flags of the #DominicanRepublic and chanted “Pe-dro! Pe-dro!” with little prompting on Sunday at the @baseballhall induction ceremony in #Cooperstown, New York. Pedro is the second Dominican #baseball player to enter the Hall of Fame, 32 years after Juan Marichal became the first. @nathaniel_brooks_photo captured Nathaly Garcia, from the Bronx, rallying with fellow supporters. “Don’t look at me as numbers, as baseball, as achievements,” Pedro said when he spoke to the crowd. “I’d like you to see me as a sign of hope for a third world country, for Latin America, someone you can look up to to say, ‘I’m proud of you.’” Follow @nathaniel_brooks_photo to see more photos.” By nytimes on Instagram.
