[Video] Roberto Perez Delivers First Major League Homer

Instant Replay Results In First Career Home Run

Cleveland Indians catcher Roberto Perez made his major league debut against the New York Yankees yesterday and recorded a single off David Phelps in the bottom of the seventh for his first major league hit.

In the bottom of the eighth inning he delivered a 2-run homer to left that was originally ruled a double but overturned when Manager


Tito Francona came out to request that the umpires take a look at the play.

After the game Perez spoke about his big day.

Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com relayed a story that Perez only had two bats with him and broke them both leaving him scrambling for a piece of lumber. He chose one of Asdrubal Cabrera’s bats and said this:

“Cabrera’s bat is a little lighter than mine, but I’ll be asking him for a couple of more in the morning.” cleveland.com
