Baseball is back.

Pitchers and catchers reported to Royals spring training on Tuesday, and opening day is a little more than six weeks away. No one can say what the regular season holds for the Royals, but one thing seems certain.

Catcher Salvador Perez will be featured in Price Chopper commercials again.

You may recall that last year’s commercials featured Perez “surprising” shoppers. Perez recently shared a video on his Instagram stories and it appeared to be from the set of his new commercial.

Behind a desk is the Price Chopper logo on the wall, and you can see what appears to be replicas (or perhaps the real thing) of Perez’s Gold Glove awards and Silver Slugger award. There is also a really big chair.

Here is the video that Perez shared:

Yep, there was a Gatorade bucket, too.
