Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"History is like this sometimes. Halley's comet finally returns and it can't be distinguished from an incoming Boeing. Scientists peek at the Shroud of Turin and it turns out to be a late purchase from the neighborhood Rexall. And now this. The patient baseball fans of Philadelphia wait 18 seasons for a no-hitter to be pitched in Veterans Stadium, and it occurs on a rainy September night when a quirky major-leaguer throws five hitless innings against a listless ball club. But there it is. Pascual Perez of Montreal threw a no-hitter last night. Umpire Harry Wendelstedt waved off the game after a 90-minute rain delay and Perez's name was etched forever in the record book." - Sportswriter Bob Ford in The Inquirer (09/25/1988, 'Perez Blanks The Phils On 5-inning No-hitter', Source )

Did you know that Pascual Perez, also known as Perimeter Perez once appeared in a television commercial that spoofed the whole wrong-way Pascual incident (Wrong-Way Pascual had two previous starts in Fulton County Stadium, but spent two hours driving around the city looking for the exit, had to stop for gas, then needed to borrow money, recalling, "There's a big radio and the merengue music was real loud. I forgot my wallet, so I have no money and no license. I pass around the city two times easy, but the car so hot I stop at a gas station. I ask for $10 worth, and the guy say, 'You Pascual Perez? People been waiting for you at the stadium.' I'm 20 minutes away, he tell me. I feel like a heart attack. I think I get fired, maybe. Boss Torre say he fine me $100. I say, 'What you say, $100?' He smile, say, 'Ciento pesos' I smile. Ciento pesos worth only 10 bucks.")? Sports Illustrated, May 23, 1983, (Volume 58, No. 21, John Garrity, 'He Has Found The Way To Go', Page 72) had this great excerpt about the incident:
Pascual Perimeter Perez
Pascual "Perimeter" Perez Krystal Burgers Commercial

"Buenos dias," says the man in the commercial, one gold tooth gleaming in his smile. "I am Pascual Perez. [This is from the English subtitles; the soundtrack is in Spanish.] I work very hard to earn this baseball cap, but you don't have to. You just go to Krystal to get a Braves cap like mine...for only two-fifty. Plus, get a schedule so you can come to all the games." He grins. "Personally, I suggest you get a map, too."

That's an odd recommendation considering that if Perez had carried a map with him last Aug. 19, he wouldn't be making commercials for a fast-food chain today. That was the day when Perez, a righthanded pitcher from the Dominican Republic, missed a crucial start because, while driving to the stadium in a rented car, he got lost on Atlanta's perimeter freeway system and circled the city three times before running out of gas. Perez,' teammates, mired in a 2-19 slump, found the mishap so hilarious that they laughed their way into a 13-2 winning streak and then went on to win the National League West, thereby making Perez' ride more familiar to Atlanta schoolchildren than Paul Revere's. Now he wears 1-285 on the back of his warmup jacket and smiles indulgently when he's called Perimeter Perez or Wrong-Way Pascual. "When I get lost, I make our luck better," says Perez. "Mine too. Now, every time I pitch in Atlanta, the people like me."

Pascual Perez threw a five-inning rain-shortened no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies on September 24, 1988 . It was the first no-hitter in Veterans Stadium history. Pascual allowed one walk, and another Phillies baserunner reached on an error. Umpire Harry Wendelstedt waved off the game after a 90-minute rain delay after the game was stopped by rain with one out in the top of the sixth inning. Pascual's brother, Melido Perez , ALSO pitched a rain shortened no-hitter, a six-and-a-half inning no-no on July 12, 1990 , in Yankee Stadium. Since each instance was less than nine innings, they are both considered unofficial (according to Major League Baseball) no-hitters. Do not worry about doing the research, we did it, they are the only two brothers in Major League history to each throw a rain-shortened no-hitter.

I-285 was suspended in March 1992, after failing a drug test the day he arrived for Spring Training with the New York Yankees. Pascual was entering the final season of a three-year, $5.7 million contract, but never returned to Major League Baseball. He retired in his homeland of the Dominican Republic where he was murdered on November 1, 2012, by three robbers who beat him to death with a hammer in an attempt to steal his $2,400 monthly baseball pension check ( Additional Details ).
