My dad took me and my late sister Jennifer to the Kingdome to see Gaylord Perry beat the Yankees 7-3 to become the 15th man ever to win 300 games.

    He always looked like he was 63 years old, even when he was 36.

    I was there, too. My grandpa and Gaylord were pals. We sat with Gaylord's late wife and late son that night. I have a signed game ball inscribed #300. Awesome dude. I talk to him about once a year. My sister married one of GP's teammate's sons. CSB

    This hangs in our hallway



    That's great. We were sitting down the first baseline. Throughout the game fans were cheering GAYLORD! GAYLORD! GAYLORD!

    I also loved/hated the Yankees back then and was thrilled we beat them

    I know you're being sarcastic, but they won about 75 games that year

    You’re probably thinking of Ryan Feierabend or R. A. Dickey. I believe those were the only Knuckleballers to play for the M’s. (I like to call them the M’s)

    Oh I’m getting Gaylord and Jim perry mixed up with the Niekro brothers who were the knuckle ballers.

    I still say bring back the knuckle balls. All the baseball fags like @Fishpo31 are obsessed with radar guns.

    Not me…I was a crafty righty, which means I became a pitching corch…a pitching corch with a pretty good knuckle ball…
