WASHINGTON—Former All-Star pitcher Pedro Martinez is in Washington to conduct a baseball mini-clinic and to promote exercise for children.

Martinez, a former Cy Young award winner who won a World Series ring with the Boston Red Sox in 2004, is scheduled to appear at 3 p.m. Thursday at Maury Wills Field in Northwest D.C.

On Friday, he'll attend an unveiling of his portrait at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

Martinez was an eight-time All-Star. He also pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Montreal Expos, New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies.
