Royals star Pérez becomes US Citizen at team's fan event

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Already a World Series MVP, six-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove catcher, Salvador Perez became something else when he stepped onto the main stage at the Kansas City Royals' annual FanFest: a U.S. citizen.

Perez took his oath of citizenship on Friday, the completion of a five-year process that he described as long and difficult, but well worth it.
