  Gaylord Perry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Gaylord Jackson Perry (born September 15, 1938 in Williamston, North Carolina) was a Major League Baseball player and member of the United States Baseball Hall of Fame.
Despite Perry's notoriety for doctoring baseballs--he even went so far as to title his autobiography Me and the Spitter--he wouldn't be ejected for the illegal practice until 1983, his 20th season in the majors.
Perry retired in 1983 after pitching for eight teams (the San Francisco Giants, Cleveland Indians, Texas Rangers, San Diego Padres, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Seattle Mariners and Kansas City Royals).

Gaylord Perry, one of the premier pitchers of his generation, won 314 games and struck out 3524 batters, but his place in baseball history rests mainly with his notorious use of the spitball, or greaseball, which defied batters, humiliated umpires, and infuriated opposing managers for two decades.
During Perry's career, the rules governing the enforcement of the spitball were changed twice, and the umpires were given explicit directives concerning the pitch several other times, and all this was primarily because of Gaylord Perry.
Gaylord and Jim began plowing the fields with a mule at the age of seven, and Gaylord's earliest childhood memories were of working on the farm and wanting to be a cowboy.
