For Pete's Sake

Salvador Perez was so very excited to see Lorenzo Cain at spring-training complex

You think you’re excited about the start of spring training?

That enthusiasm can’t match Royals catcher Salvador Perez, who was thrilled Friday to see teammate Lorenzo Cain in the team’s spring-training clubhouse in Surprise, Ariz.

Cain showed up at the complex on Friday and Perez was ready to capture the moment (of course):


1st time for me seeing lo Cain this year, I'm so happy to see my brother!!!!! MY HERMANITO back

Cain didn’t quite match Perez’s enthusiasm, right? But it was still fun to get an inside look at the clubhouse and what it’s like when a player gets to spring training and meets old friends.
