Gaylord Perry - Where Is He Now?

baseball

Gaylord Perry's retirement from baseball took the former pitcher and his family to Martin County, North Carolina. Perry began a new life as a farmer, as his parents had been, growing corn, soybeans, tobacco and peanuts. Unfortunately, the widespread misfortune endured by many farmers in the 1980s affected Perry; in 1986 he filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, explaining simply, "It's a farm situation." On a brighter note, in 1991 Perry was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
