Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez was named the MVP of the World Series after the Royals clinched with a 7-2 win over the New York Mets on Sunday (Nov 1).


The 25-year-old Venezuelan was solid behind the plate and delivered a clutch RBI in the Royals’ Game Five win that closed out the best-of-seven series 4-1.

Perez, the first catcher to win the award in more than two decades, collected a team-high eight hits in the series, with three runs scored and two RBIs.
