It's hard to argue that Pedro Martinez is the greatest pitcher in the storied history of the Boston Red Sox. Pedro was a first ballot Hall of Fame pitcher and has his number retired in Fenway Park. Pedro also serves an an ambassador for the team, and according to the Portland Press Herald, he'll headline the Portland Sea Dogs hot stove dinner on January 17th.

The annual dinner, this year held at the Sable Oaks Marriott in South Portland, is a fundraiser for Maine Children's Cancer programs and also a fun and informative night on all things Red Sox and Sea Dogs.

Additional special guests are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
