Vladimir Guerrero Sr is a Dominican former professional baseball player, who spent 16 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a right fielder and designated hitter.
Between 2004 and 2009, Guerrero led the Angels to five AL West titles and was chosen one of baseball’s most feared batters by all 30 big league managers.
At-bats beyond the strike zone were considered his specialty, and his ability to hit one after it bounced in front of home plate was on display on August 14, 2009, when he nailed one after it bounced in front of home plate.
Despite only having two seasons with at least 65 walks, his aggressive style of batting allowed him to hit over 30 home runs (HR) and score over 100 runs (RBI) in each of his eight seasons of playing.
There were 1,780 balls placed into play on the first pitch of each of Guerrero’s at-bats. On September 26, 2011, Guerrero overtook Julio Franco as the all-time MLB leader in hits by a Dominican player, a record that has since been broken by Adrián Beltré.
The Baseball Hall of Fame inducts him every year. When Guerrero’s son hit 40 home runs in 2021, he became only the second father-son tandem in MLB history to do so, after Cecil and Prince Fielder.
