Andres Perez becomes Revolution all-time hits leader
With a fifth inning single on July 19 in a 3-2 loss at Lancaster, York Revolution 1B/2B Andres Perez became the new franchise all-time hit leader in just two and a half seasons with York, surpassing the 383 hits collected by outfielder James Shanks in three-plus seasons with the club.
Perez batted .314 (161 hits, 23 HR, 86 RBI) in 132 games in 2012, and followed that with 151 hits in 2013. In 2014 he was away from York, playing the entire season with the Sioux City (Iowa) Explorers of the American Association. In his return, Perez has rapped 73 hits in his first 77 games this season to set the new record. For good measure he finished 2-for-4 on July 19, adding hit number 385 as well with another single in the seventh.
Perez was already the Revolution’s all-time leader in a doubles (89, currently), a mark he set on June 7 in a 3-0 home win over Lancaster. Perez is also fifth on the all-time Revolution home run list (40).
