Gaylord Perry RIP.

Post by Joe Shlabotnik »

HoFer and spitball extraordinaire. Won 20 games five times and a Cy Young in both leagues. Also threw a no-hitter against the Cardinals in 1968.

Gaylord and Jim Perry were quite the pitching brothers.

It always struck me as hilarious that in baseball, there is a right way to cheat that is lovable and quirky, and a wrong way to cheat that is evil etc.
