The dude was quite a character, and he was probably a better pitcher than his won-loss record indicated.
As I-285 forms a complete circle around Atlanta (much as I-465 does around Indianapolis), I don't see how he could get lost on it, as he'd eventually end up back at the exit he was supposed to take. IIRC, I-75 runs right past where Atlanta Fulton County Stadium used to be, and Turner Field currently is, as one can see it from the highway.

Rest in peace, Mr. Perez.
