Salvador Perez wears women’s perfume behind the plate

25 Comments

Kansas City TV station KSHB in Kansas City interviewed Royals catcher Salvador Perez. It’s the standard stuff: he hopes the Royals will win the World Series this year. He used to play a different position before playing catcher. He is close friends with his teammates. He wears womens’ perfume when he’s catching.

Wait, what?  *re-watches the video* yep. Victoria’s Secret. Chanel. You know, the usual stuff. He picked up the habit from Alcides Escobar, who also wears Victoria’s Secret perfume. And an umpire once said “You smell good, Salvy.”

I cannot express how much I love this story.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
