Here's why Royals catcher Salvador Perez wears perfume when he's behind the plate

There are the little superstitions players adhere to because they think it gives them an edge -- eating a certain pregame meal, employing a consistent warm-up regimen, wearing the perfect women's fragrance--wait, what?

Yeah, Royals catcher Salvador Perez recently revealed in an interview with KSHB in Kansas City that he often wears fragrances from Victoria's Secret or Chanel to get on the umpire's good side.

He's also rocking some Red Sox-colored shower shoes at the moment because success in baseball is actually magic. Whatever works, man.
