The Kansas City Chiefs have chosen their drum honoree for their Week 5 “Sunday Night Football” game at Arrowhead Stadium against the Buffalo Bills.

The team has invited a good friend from across the parking lot at Kauffman Stadium to serve as drum honoree for the game. Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez will get the crowd at Arrowhead Stadium ready for this important early-season AFC conference matchup.

The 10-year major league veteran had a monster season for the Royals. Not only did he tie the franchise single-season home-run record with 48 dongs on the year, but he surpassed Johnny Bench’s MLB record for home runs by a catcher in a single season. Needless to say, Salvy is the perfect choice to get the Chiefs Kingdom in the mood to take in some football ahead of the game.

In addition to Perez, the Chiefs will have more pregame entertainment with retired Naval Petty Officer Generald Wilson set to sing the National Anthem. For the superstitious types, Wilson has twice sung the National Anthem ahead of big playoff wins for Kansas City. Last season he sang at the divisional-round game against the Cleveland Browns. The season prior he sang the National Anthem at the AFC title game against the Tennessee Titans.

This game is also the Chiefs’ Crucial Catch game, raising cancer awareness. At halftime, singer Angelica Hale will perform Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” as the team honors seven doctors and seven cancer survivors from The University of Kansas Health System. The number seven represents the seven screenable cancers.
