Tragic news: Pascual, 55, was reportedly murdered in his home Nov. 1 by intruders.

We’re sad to report that former Major League Baseball pitcher Pascual Perez, 55, was killed in his Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, home. Though the exact cause of his Nov. 1 death has yet to be announced, reports confirm that Pascual was attacked by several people and was struck in the head.

Pascual was best known for his time on the New York Yankees. He was a right-hand pitcher in 1991, but was suspended in 1992 after testing positive twice for cocaine use.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pascual’s family.
