Former Cleveland Indians pitcher Chris Perez, who once got a 50-game suspension after shipping weed to his dog, is retiring.
Wednesday, coincidentally, is also National Dog Day, which is fitting because Perez is most famous for getting a shipment of weed at his house in 2013 and telling the cops it was for his dog.
“According to the report, at around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday an undercover officer dressed as a postal carrier delivered the packages, addressed to Brody Baum at the Parklane address. Brody is the name of the Perez dog. Baum is [Chris’s wife] Melanie Perez's maiden name.
The undercover officer asked Melanie Perez if the packages were meant for that address and was told that they were for the dog, the report said.”
Perez pleaded no contest to the charges, paid a $250 fine and got one year of probation.
