MLB Hall of Fame pitcher Gaylord Perry passed away on Thursday due to natural causes. The two-time Cy Young Award winner spent two season pitching for the Padres in 1978 and 1979, winning the NL Cy Young Award in 1978 while pitching for the Padres. Perry was famous for his use of the spitball, and wrote a book about using the pitch. Perry went 21-6 with a 2.73 ERA during his '78 Cy Young season with the Padres. Our thoughts are with Perry's family.
