Reports this morning from the Dominican Republic indicate that former Atlanta Braves pitcher Pasqual Perez was killed during a home invasion. Here is the Google Translation of this story, originally in Spanish:
Pascual The mound exastro Gross "Cuth" Perez was killed at his home, allegedly the victim of a robbery that occurred this morning in the town of Nigua.
According to a report, the exlanzador, who was 55, died murdered by their abusers.
Unfortunate circumstance for a pitcher, known mainly for missing a scheduled start in the 80's because he was allegedly circling the Atlanta Perimeter. That led to his nickname of Perimeter Pasqual. Talking Chop's own Chris Mays had an excellent writeup about Perez in last Sunday's Cardboard Memories. Check it out here.
