Vladimir Guerrero Jr. #27
When your father amasses 449 career home runs and has one of the most iconic swings in MLB history, it’s hard to fly under the radar. But when you hit towering shots that surpass even your father’s capabilities and share the same name, that desire to fly under the radar becomes impossible. This is the case for Vlad Guerrero Jr. who just finished his first season in the MLB for the Toronto Blue Jays with the Vladimir Guerrero Jr Jersey being the highest selling rookie jersey of the 2019 season.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr Jersey
Like the scenarios of lifelong friend Fernando Tatis Jr. and teammate Bo Bichette, Vladimir Jr. grew up in an MLB clubhouse, learning the ropes and preparing to be a professional himself, starting at a very young age. Guerrero was born in Montreal when his father was playing for the Montreal Expos (now the Washington Nationals). Even though his father never forced his son to play the game he loved so much, that was never necessary.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr Autograph
Vlad Jr. was born to be an MLB superstar and had a passion for the game many kids don’t have. If there was ever any doubt on the career Guerrero would pursue, one simply needs to look at his godfathers to understand there were never other options: Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez and 19-year veteran Andres Gallaraga.
Youth Vladimir Guerrero Jr Jersey
At the age of 16, Guerrero Jr. signed with the Toronto Blue Jays for $3.9 Million dollars in 2015 signed with the Toronto Blue Jays for $3.9 Million dollars in 2015. From there, his prowess as a stout, big hitting, superstar began to make itself known in baseball circles. During the 2018 season, Guerrero flirted with hitting .400 across all levels, and hit 20 home runs while walking (150 times) more than striking out (139), which is a skill his father never mastered.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr Memorabilia
The young star had power, plate discipline, and the ability to put the ball wherever he wanted, making his abilities behind the plate at the level of MLB elites, not of a kid who had yet to turn 20 years old. A frustrating aspect of the Vlad Jr. saga was his long awaited promotion to the major leagues (many fans purchased Vladimir Guerrero Jersey’s before he made his debut). Many have felt that Guerrero has been ready since the moment he entered the minor leagues, but due to MLB contract scenarios, Guerrero had to wait until a few weeks into the 2019 season to make his debut.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr Rookie Card
During his rookie season, the show that Vlad puts on everywhere he goes showed up in Cleveland during all-star weekend. In the Home Run derby, the Blue Jays youngster broke the single round record for home runs by cranking out 29–Twice. In the end, he would lose to Mets slugger Pete Alonso in the finals, but it was Guerrero and his 91(!) home runs that stole the show.
Vladimir was still only a rookie, and in many parts of his game, it shows. He accumulated 1.5 Wins Above Replacement during his rookie year while hitting 15 home runs, batting .272, and being a below average defender. With this being said, the potential for stardom is there, and almost seems likely that we will hear his name as a consistent addition to all-star game starting lineups for years to come.
