KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez showed why he’s one of the most beloved players on the team during Tuesday’s 10-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

A young Royals fan was loudly cheering “Salvy” all night. That’s when Perez surprised him with a bat during the game.

Safe to say his night was made.

Perez had two home runs and three RBIs on the night.

The Royals are back on the road facing the Minnesota Twins in a four game series starting Friday.
