Pedro's hard work leads to Labor Day success
CINCINNATI -- When Pedro Martinez walked to the mound for the first time in nearly a year Monday, he returned under his terms. From the moment he realized last year that his arm might never allow him the beauty of what it once accomplished all those majestic years, Martinez decided he would not leave the game as he did last September: a broken-down, aged pitcher.

I see my family and all the people who have hope that I'm going to come back and have me as a role model. ... A lot of people don't understand. The better you are, the bigger your responsibility is.
