Pedro Martinez: perfect game, 8th inning, drills batter.

It was the second start of 1994 for Pedro Martinez, his first season for Montreal after pitching these innings for the Dodgers: 8 in 1992, 107 in 1993 .  Felipe Alou was the Montreal manager.  Martinez had retired the first 22 batters and led 2-0 when he drilled Reggie Sanders so flagrantly that Sanders charged the mound.  Sanders was replaced but it brought up Roberto Kelly who could have tied the game with a home run.  Martinez struck out Kelly swinging.

Martinez hit a batter intentionally, brought up the tying run, even though he was pitching a perfect game in the 8th inning.

Elected on first ballot: Pedro Martinez, head hunting psychopath...

So the one character offense from which even a confession cannot redeem you is PED use .... if you are a home run hitter.  If you are a mere head hunting psychopath, then you can be elected on the first ballot.
