BOSTON (AP) — Former Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez has won the prestigious Fuchs Award from the Boston chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.

The award for long and meritorious service to baseball is named for Judge Emil Fuchs, the former owner of the Boston Braves. Past winners of the silver platter awarded since 1959 include Hank Aaron, Marvin Miller and Ernie Harwell.

In a 17-year career with the Dodgers, Montreal Expos, Red Sox, Mets and Phillies, Martinez posted a 219-100 record with a 2.93 ERA. He was the Cy Young Award winner in 1997 with Montreal and in 1999 and 2000 with the Red Sox.

The award will be presented to Martinez on Jan. 22 at the Boston BBWAA’s annual dinner at Boston University’s Agganis Arena.
