For Pete's Sake

Salvador Perez’s zest for life is a big reason why he’s a fan favorite among Royals fans.

It seems that Perez is always smiling on the field, particularly after a victory. That smile will sometimes turn to a devilish grin when he grabs a cooler and prepares to soak a teammate.

Royals fans hope to see that a lot in 2017.

As spring training opens in Surprise, Ariz., here is a look back at some of the Salvy Splashes from 2016.
