Perez, Seratelli named Texas League All-Stars
Salvador Perez was named as the North Division's reserve catcher, behind starter Wilin Rosario. At 21, the backstop is among the youngest players in the Texas League.

The Texas League All-Star rosters were voted on by a panel that included Texas League President Tom Kayser, the league's managers, coaches, radio broadcasters, and newspaper beat writers.
