Prior to the game on September 19, York Revolution infielder Andres Perez was presented with the organization’s Most Valuable Player award for the 2015 season, by Team President Eric Menzer and Manager Mark Mason. All Perez did to celebrate the occasion was go 4-for-5 with a two-run double and a three-run homer, and his six total RBI helped the Revs beat Somerset 11-6 in the penultimate game of the season. The Saturday night crowd at Santander Stadium was a season-high 6,291.
In his third season as a Rev, Perez has re-written a good portion of the York record book. On July 19 at Lancaster, he became the Revolution all-time hit leader with his 384th in franchise history, and sits at 465 career hits with York after September 19. That’s now 82 more hits than the man Perez passed, James Shanks (383).
Perez is also the career-Revolution leader in doubles (105), extra-base hits (163), total bases (738), games played (395) and at-bats (1556). His 248 RBI in a Revs uniform makes him the all-time franchise leader in that category as well. (The night Perez became the franchise RBI leader August 14 at Bridgeport, he also drove in six runs, in a 3-for-6 effort, also with a double and a homer in a 13-5 win.) Perez is currently second on the Revolution career home run list; his 16 this season makes for a total of 52, seven shy of Chris Nowak’s 59.
