DENVER — Salvador Perez said he wanted to participate in the Home Run Derby at some point in his career. He’ll make that dream a reality Monday night at Coors field.

The Kansas City Royals’ catcher also showed off some new All-Star ink that he is using to mark the event.

The Royals tweeted pictures of Salvy’s two new All-Star tattoos.

The first is a star depicting the Colorado mountains. Perez has six other star tattoos, one for each All-Star Game he’s made.

The second tattoo shows the 2021 Home Run Derby that he’ll hit in Monday night.

During the derby, Perez will use customized bats that he helped design himself.

Perez will also start at catcher for the American League in the 2021 All-Star Game Tuesday evening. You can watch Perez and Whit Merrifield in the game on FOX4 at 7 p.m.
