MLB: Solo Leader! Salvador Pérez hits home run 47 and leaves Vladdy Jr behind

Goodbye little ball! Salvador Pérez hit his 47th home run in the 2021 season from MLB, so much so that it makes it position itself as solo leader from the home run department, leaving behind Vladimir Guerrero Jr. The Venezuelan blew up the wall in the meeting on Tuesday, September 28 between the Kansas City Royals and the Cleveland ‘Tribe’.

Salvador Pérez’s bat was reignited in the final stretch of the regular role of the 2021 MLB Season, as tonight he hit 47 home runs with the Kansas City Royals this year to take the lead.

The Venezuelan blew the fence all over left field in the bottom of the sixth inning of the game against the Cleveland ‘Tribe’ in order to overtake Royals on the scoreboard that was tied and put the game 4 runs to 3.

With this full-back hit, the receiver of the Kansas team left Vladimir Guerrero Jr. behind in the ‘battle’ for the highest number of home runs connected in the year, since the Dominican did not do his thing in the game against the Yankees of New York.

Salvador Pérez has had an outstanding performance in the 2021 MLB Season, in which he has been in talks of probabilities of winning the Triple Crown; however, in batting percentage he is still far behind Trea Turner, the leader.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
