Stat of the Day: Salvy’s Record Setting All-Star Vote

Salvador Perez was selected to his fourth straight All-Star Game in 2016 with a Major League best 4,965,838 votes, becoming the first Royal to lead the Majors in All-Star voting since George Brett in 1981.

Even before earning his fourth straight All-Star selection in 2016, Salvy’s accomplishments placed him in elite company.

Following the 2015 season, Perez became the fourth catcher ever to win three Rawlings Gold Gloves and earn three All-Star Game selections before his 26th birthday, joining Johnny Bench, Bill Freehan and Ivan Rodriguez.
