About Dustin Pedroia

As the first American League team to play in the World Series, the Boston Red Sox have a long and storied history that includes Most Valuable Players like Hall-of-Famers Jimmy Foxx, Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski. One of the Boston nine's recent MVPs is a second baseman you would not expect to run in such company: Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia won the award in 2008 when he was just 24 years old, leading the American League in doubles with 54 and runs scored with 118. A Dustin Pedroia jersey is usually the one with dirt all over it after a game, and it is no coincidence that one of his nicknames is "Muddy Chicken." When the Dustin Pedroia bobbblehead doll was released, rather than standing up like every other baseball toy he was portrayed diving while supporting his prone body with an outstretched hand. Dustin Pedroia is listed in the program guide as 5 feet, 9 inches tall, but most observers consider that a stretch. He may be small in stature, but the Red Sox second sacker is big in the memorabilia market.
