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.

So far this year, Perez has caught a league-best 44.4 percent (24 CS in 54 attempts) of attempted basestealers.
Thanks to the Naturals' 2010 Texas League title, the North squad will be led by NW Arkansas manager Brian Poldberg and his coaching and training staff.
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.
