Police in the Dominican Republic say former major league pitcher Pascual Perez has been killed in his home during an apparent robbery.
A statement from police in the Caribbean country says Perez was attacked by several people inside his home in a town west of the capital. He had been struck in the head but the cause of death has not been released. No suspects are in custody.
Pascuel and his brother Melido both had no-hitters taken away from them when MLB stupidly changed the rule invalidating rain shortened no-hitters. Pascuel pitched a five inning no-hitter in 1988 and Melido had one of six innings in 1990. (sorry, just one of those stupid trivia things stuck in my head)
