The Royals season is over, but catcher Salvador Perez will be back at the Truman Sports Complex on Monday night.
However, Perez will be spending the night next door to his workplace at Kauffman Stadium.
The Chiefs announced Monday that Perez will be the drum leader for the game at Arrowhead Stadium. He will be in charge of getting fans fired up before the Chiefs play host to Washington. Well, they’ll be amped to begin with, but Perez should just make things even more fun.
Just don’t expect a Salvy Splash.
