NEW YORK — It's a year for the books for Pedro Martinez, who was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this week: Now the pitcher has a memoir coming out in May.

The book was first acquired in 2013 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, which on Wednesday announced that the release date for "Pedro" was May 5. Martinez, widely regarded as one of the greatest pitchers of his generation, received three Cy Young Awards and won more than 200 games.

"Pedro," written with Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald, follows Martinez from his "hardscrabble upbringing" in the Dominican Republic to his triumphant years with the Boston Red Sox and other teams.
