The Kansas City Royals debut in the 2023 MLB season this Thursday hosting the Minnesota Twins, in a duel in which Salvador Pérez will make history thanks to his uniform.

Indeed, the Venezuelan catcher will wear the letter “C” on his game clothing, referring to his debut as captain of the monarchy franchise.

In this way, Salvador Pérez becomes the fourth formal captain of the Royals and the first since the former starter Mike Sweeney, in the mid-2000s. Frank White and the immortal George Brett were the first members of Kansas City to receive such a distinction.

The South American catcher will play his twelfth season in the Major Leagues, always with the Royals, not including a 2019 in which he did not participate due to a delicate elbow injury. He accumulates a .268 average with 223 home runs, four Silver Sluggers, and five Gold Gloves, in addition to receiving seven invitations to the All-Star Game and being named MVP of the 2015 World Series.

Likewise, the carabobeño will face the second year of a contract of four and 82 million dollars, signed following hitting 49 home runs and driving in 121 stripes in 2021.

There is no doubt that Salvador Pérez is the history, present and future of the Kansas City Royals.
