Former Braves pitcher Pascual Perez was killed in an armed robbery at his residence in the Dominican Republic, a Dominican news website reported.
Perez, who earned the nickname “Perimeter Perez” when he got lost on I-285 en route to a Braves game in 1982, was reportedly stabbed in the neck, according to the Dominican Today website.
Perez, 55, played with the Braves for four seasons, from 1982-85. He pitched a total of 11 years in the Major Leagues, with Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Montreal and the New York Yankees.
