Baseball Hall of Famer, first man to win the Cy Young award in both leagues, Gaylord Perry achieved the pitchers’ magic numbers with over 300 wins and over 3,000 strikeouts.
Perry is known for distracting and frustrating hitters through an array of rituals on the mound that was part of his arsenal. His ultimate weapon was his "phantom spitball" that he either threw or alluded to, unnerving enemy hitters, managers, and umpires. Although he was notorious for doctoring baseballs, he was only caught once in his 22 year career which started in 1962. A 20-game winner five times with a lifetime ERA of 3.10, Perry no-hit the Cards while with San Francisco on September 17, 1968.
Perry has written one book: Me and the Spitter: An Autobiographical Confession.
An outstanding competitor, Gaylord message is inspirational and motivational, filled with fun stories and enthusiasm.
