    RIP Gaylord Perry

    Master of the spitter and grease ball. What a great character.

    Everyone should spit on his grave out of respect.

    R.I.P.

    The best story I know about him is his manager Alvin Dark saying that they'll put a man on the moon before he hits a home run.

    Perry hit his first HR roughly 30 minutes after Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon.

    Rest in peace.

    RIP to a baseball legend.

    RIP to an excellent pitcher and colorful character. Now he can go back to tormenting Bobby Murcer in eternity with his spitball
