The Toronto Blue Jays played host to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night, and they got a special visit from an MLB legend.
Pedro Martinez made an appearance, and while he never pitched for the Blue Jays, he showed up in style.
He played a good portion of his career with the Montreal Expos, and with the game being played in Canada, it made perfect sense.
The Hall-of-Famer threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and showed that he still has what it takes to dominate as a pitcher, as he threw a strike to Guerrero and received a warm hand from the crowd.
On Twitter, MLB posted a video of the moment.
Pedro Martinez still has it. 🔥
