Milt Pappas, who came within a disputed pitch of throwing a perfect game for the Chicago Cubs in 1972 and was part of the lopsided trade that brought Frank Robinson to Baltimore, died Tuesday. He was 76. Pappas also made headlines in the 1980s because of the mysterious death of his then wife, Carole, who disappeared in 1982 and whose body was found five years later in a shallow Wheaton pond.
