Default RIP, Pascual Perez

NL All Star in 1983 for the Braves, also pitched for the Pirates, Expos, and Yankees in his 11-year-career. Found dead this morning at his home in the Domincan Republic, following an apparent robbery.

His brother, Melido, pitched for the White Sox from 1988-1991.

That is tragic. R.I.P., Pascual.

Yes.

Melido was the Sox's Opening Day starter in 1990. Later that year, on July 12, he threw a rain-shortened, unofficial no-hitter against the Yankees and Andy Hawkins.

..and twelve days before that Hawkins threw the no-hitter in a game he lost to the Sox. MLB later took away his no-no because he did not pitch nine innings. He did not pitch nine because his outfield could not catch a fly ball or two and his offense could not score any runs. There was no reason for the Sox to hit in the Ninth.

Whenever I see Pascual Perez mentioned, I always think about the time he missed a start when he was with the Braves because he got lost on I-285 driving to the ballpark.

The dude was quite a character, and he was probably a better pitcher than his won-loss record indicated.
