Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez talks shower shoes, best friends and perfume

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - When I went to the stadium for an interview with Royals All-Star catcher Salvador Perez, I expected he'd be a nice guy. I assumed he'd have interesting stories to tell about his rise to greatness. But, I wasn't prepared for how funny almost everything he said would be.

Turns out, Salvy owns a pair of shower shoes from another team, which, on the surface, seems like a dirty, rotten, traitor-type thing to do. Until you learn where they came from, why he still wears them, and what he plans to do with them if the team's luck changes.

And then there's the perfume.
