Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is living a dream season in MLB. And one of his consecrating days has already happened: it was in the All-Star Game, in which he hit a monstrous home run and won the MVP of the game. As an award he dedicated to his father, the glove he used on his magical night was also inspired by Vladimir Guerrero.
“Vladdy Jr.” He wore a custom glove, which repeatedly had a photo of him as a child, and accompanied his father during his father’s internship with the Montreal Expos, the first team in Vladimir Guerrero Sr.’s career.
In the photo, father and son show off their cap and helmet for fans. Without a doubt, it is a photo that the Toronto Blue Jays star treasures in a very good way. He also talks about the good relationship with his father, who has always supported him on his way.
This is incredible.
