True or false: Perry's spitters (answered)

Postby Arlo » Tue May 07, 2002 3:42 pm

True or false: By the time he had won the Cy Young award in both leagues, spitballer Gaylord Perry had been ejected from more than fifty regular season games and drawn over four years worth of salary (averaged over this time) in fines.

Perry was only thrown out once. I still have a copy of the Seattle Times from the day after it happened.

Correct - this happened in 1982, after Perry had won his Cy's.

Keeping the paper from that day is pretty cool. Do you collect, or was Perry's ejection so flabbergasting you had to have a record of it? B-)
