Ex-Expos Mourned

In Expos Greats, Uncategorized on November 2, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Ex-Montreal Expos and Error Card Legend Pascual Perez was killed during a home invasion on November 1st in the Dominican Republic. The one-time all-star accumulated a 67-68 career record during an 11-year career mostly spent in the National League. Perez played for the Expos from 1987-89, where he went 28-21 with 8 CG’s and two shutouts. Pérez threw a five-inning rain-shortened no-hitter against the Phillies on September 24, 1988. It was the first no-hitter in Veterans Stadium history. Pérez 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. This game was later taken out of the record books as a no-hitter. Two of his brothers were also major leaguers, mayor of San Gregorio de Nigua Melido Perez & Carlos Perez. Pascual Perez gained notoriety within the baseball card circles with his 1982 TOPPS error card currently valued at $40.00 in the most recent issue of Beckett Baseball.
