PLAYERS: Pedro Martinez
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Pedro Martinez is down in Florida with the Red Sox for Spring Training. Obviously he’d be hitting the local bars. We spotted the above photo on Instagram which highlights Pedro and his…um…generous tipping. We figured a waitress would be pissed to only receive a $20 tip from a pro athlete. Not this girl!

Here is a Pedro autographed ball to confirm that the signature on the bill is actually his: Notice the sloppiness on the bar bill? This has to have been after about three hours of slugging Bud Platinums and coconut shrimp. Pedro really seems to be enjoying his time in Florida. [jmeac Instagram] Filed under: Baseball, MLB
