Question RE: New Grim Reaper Death Thread
Gaylord Perry, two-time Cy Young winner, dies at 84

[Image: JV4TFL3YDYE6KA5P7IJMH3QULY.jpg]

Quote:Baseball Hall of Famer and two-time Cy Young Award winner Gaylord Perry, a master of the spitball who wrote a book about using the pitch, died Thursday. He was 84.

The native of Williamston, N.C., made history as the first player to win the Cy Young in both leagues, with Cleveland in 1972 and San Diego in 1978 just after turning 40.

Perry went 24-16 in his debut season with Cleveland after 10 years with the San Francisco Giants. He was 21-6 in his first season with the Padres in 1978 for his fifth and final 20-win season.

“Before I won my second Cy Young I thought I was too old – I didn’t think the writers would vote for me,” Perry said in an article on the National Baseball Hall of Fame website. “But they voted on my performance, so I won it.”

Perry’s 1974 autobiography was titled “Me and the Spitter,” and he wrote that when he started in 1962 he was the “11th man on an 11-man pitching staff” for the Giants. He needed an edge and learned the spitball from San Francisco teammate Bob Shaw.

Perry said he first threw it in May 1964 against the New York Mets, pitched 10 innings without giving up a run and soon after entered the Giants’ starting rotation.

He also wrote in the book that he chewed slippery elm bark to build up his saliva and eventually stopped throwing the pitch in 1968 after MLB ruled pitchers could no longer touch their fingers to their mouths before touching the baseball.

According to his book, he looked for other substances, like petroleum jelly, to doctor the baseball. He used various motions and routines to touch different parts of his jersey and body to get hitters thinking he was applying a foreign substance.

Perry was ejected from a game just once for doctoring a baseball – when he was with Seattle in August 1982. In his final season with Kansas City, Perry and teammate Leon Roberts tried to hide George Brett’s infamous pine-tar bat in the clubhouse but were stopped by a guard. Perry was ejected for his role in that game, too.

He was a hoot! I loved to watch him pitch when he was on the staff with Juan Marichal. They had some great series with the Dodgers back then. Somehow, he seemed to blend in nicely with Phil Niekro in Atlanta later in his career. Perry did an interview after his career where he talked about the various ways to doctor a ball.

Baseball was once tremendous fun, even for the fans.

RIP to the spitball king Gaylord Perry, who won 314 games.

His most insane moment came at bat.

Giants manager Alvin Dark said that man would land on the moon before Perry would hit a HR.

On July 20, 1969, man landed on the moon.

Hours later, Perry hit his 1st home run.

Wow. She lived a very hard life medically, some of which was drugs from what I have read. She said she "did a lot of cocaine," and she "was crazy." There was about a year’s span that she "did cocaine that (she) was doing it -– you could say –- more occasionally, on the weekend. Then my weekend became a three-day weekend, then it became four, then it became five.”--Kirstie Alley

Kinda young for her, but that will take years off your life and apparently it did. She was funny and a great actress. Sad for her kids. R.I.P.

Aptly named if I recall, Fragilia or some such name. It was truly a cheesy made for TV mini series and you had to be old enough already in the 70's to realize that. We must be reasonably close in age Redbanksdog!

Oh now, it's not that cheesy; maybe a little bit. We have it in our DVD collection. As far as age, I believe we are in the same Ball Park. 04-cheers
