KANSAS CITY, Mo. — FOX 4 had the opportunity to take you one on one with some of your favorite boys in blue at the 2016 Royals Fanfest as part of our All Access KC series. Watch the video above to hear from catcher Salvador Perez and find out what his postseason superstition was.
Q: What kind of superstitions did you have during the postseason?
A: Can I say my superstition on camera? …I wear the same underwear. All postseason, all season long. Actually, I wear it all day every day. OK. In the clubhouse I wear the same underwear every day.
Q: Are you still wearing that exact same underwear?
A: No, no.
Q: Salvy, what did you do during the off-season?
A: I had a couple things in Minnesota, like school, little kids, play baseball in Minnesota. So I spent a lot of time with this kid, have fun with my family, a lot of barbecue. Not too much, and now it’s back to work. We are already in Surprise, Phoenix, Ariz., and getting to work there with Pedro Grifol and sleep a little bit and eat a little bit and be ready for Spring Training.
Q: You have a reputation as a workaholic, for playing almost too much baseball. Is there such a thing as too much baseball?
A: No. Never too much baseball for me. I love the game, I love my teammates, and as I always say, every time I go they make me feel like a family. I see a lot of these guys when we play and so not to play a couple years in the big leagues, makes me very happy.
Q: But if you weren’t playing baseball, what would you be doing?
A: In the baseball, eating, fat, and fish.
Q: What was your favorite memory from last year?
A: The last out in the World Series. Seriously, I have a couple. When we win the game in Houston, we down four runs in the eighth inning and we score 5 runs that inning, I always remember that. And the last out when we beat Toronto and a runner on first and third, nobody out, runner steals so now second and third, nobody out, Wade Davis strikes out, nobody gets on base and we win. So I have a lot of memories from that year.
