  • Pascual Perez found slain in home

    Former All-star Pascual Perez was found dead earlier after a robbery in his home in the Dominican Republic.

    Damn.

    Before there were the Martinez brothers, there were the lesser successful Perez brothers. Both Pascual and Melido had the potential to have formidable careers.

    Wasn't he part of a combined no-hitter? Topps printed his 1982 baseball card without a position, and I think that's still the most valuable error card of the set.

        Didn't he get lost trying to find the exit to the stadium one year?

          Well, we know Champ Summers (RIP) didn't kill him, though he once tried to:

            I always kinda thought he got a bad deal in that 1984 brawl. If I recall the Padres tryed throwing at him 3 or 4 times.

                I think he had a rain-shortened no-hitter or perfect game against the Phillies. It was called after five or six innings, was an official game and he went in the record books until the great purge of all such games a decade or so ago.

                    Wasn't there another ballplayer attacked recently down there.

                      He played briefly here in Taiwan, and was implicated in one of the game-fixing scandals. He left before any indictments came down on him though.

                      Famous or infamous, he'll be remembered by quite a few.

                        If you recall, before the game had even started, Perez was openly bragging that he was going to hit the first Padre he faced. Which of course he did (Alan Wiggins).

                        The Padres were just starting to get good, and the Braves of course felt that some intimidation was in order.

                          Yeah thats true but he got thrown at like 4 times. I would think one time would be enough.

                          I read yesterday that he had just recieved his MLB pension check and they said that may have been a motive for the robbery. Makes me wonder how much those checks are.

                            The whole point of throwing at any batter is to hit him (especially since it was revenge for Perez hitting Wiggins). And you know Dick Williams wasn't about to let it go until that happened.

                              That Pascual Perez must have had some quick reflexes because they did finally get him on his 4th atbat. I was always amazed the umpires didn't stop that. But I guess that was different times. But still 1985 just doesn't seem like it would have a 1950's type mentality on throwing at hitters.
