Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Looks Every Bit as Good as His Father [VIDEO]
You might not know that former Major League Baseball star Vladimir Guerrero has a 15-year-old son, but it probably won't be shocking to learn that he can crush a baseball.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. worked out for MLB scouts in the Dominican Republic recently and his batting practice was shared in the YouTube video above. As you'll see, the "kid" checks in at 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, and looks just like his father at the plate: no batting gloves, wooden bat, long follow-through. According to the video, "VGJR possesses much more talent at age 15 than his father did, and those close to him believe he could potentially make it to the majors as a teenager."
That prediction doesn't seem far-fetched after watching him take those cuts, and if he can have a career better than his father's, his future will include the Hall of Fame. During senior's 16 MLB years with the Expos, Angels, Rangers, and Orioles, Guerrero was named Rookie of the Year (1997), A.L. MVP (2004), and an All-Star nine times.
Not only could he unload on a baseball, there wasn't a pitch he couldn't reach. Don't believe me? Just search 'Vladimir Guerrero' on YouTube and the first result is:
Major League Baseball is enjoying an influx of incredible young talent into the game, but we'll welcome another natural talent and possible superstar with open arms.
