Jose Perez, Lead Off - 21

Originally published Nov. 24, 2017
The Salem Dodgers needed some runs and Jose Perez did his best to get things going, according to The Salem Statesman-Journal.

Perez led off the fifth inning with a single, his club down 2-1. He then came around to score one of three runs in the frame as Salem went on to the win, The Statesman-Journal wrote.

Perez led off that rally in his first season as a pro. He went on to play in just one more. He never made single-A.

Perez' career began that summer, signed by the Dodgers as a free agent out of his native Caracas, Venezuela.

Perez started with the Dodgers at short-season Salem. He hit .242 over 55 games. He knocked in 13 and stole 10 bases.

For 1990, Perez moved with the short-season Salem franchise to Yakima, Wash. The infielder saw 22 games there and hit .282. He rounded out that career with time in the rookie Gulf Coast League. In 26 games there, he hit .217. That season also marked the end of his career.
