About Vladimir Guerrero

  • Vladimir Alvino Guerrero Sr.
  • (born February 9, 1975), is a Dominican former professional baseball player and Hall of Famer, who spent 16 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a right fielder and designated hitter.
  • He played for the Montreal Expos (1996–2003), Anaheim Angels / Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (2004–2009), Texas Rangers (2010), and Baltimore Orioles (2011).A nine-time All-Star, Guerrero was widely recognized for his impressive offensive production — regularly hitting for power and average — as well as his defensive range and strong throwing arm.
  • In 2004, he was voted the American League (AL) Most Valuable Player (MVP).
  • Guerrero helped lead the Angels to five AL West championships between 2004 and 2009 and was voted one of the most feared hitters in baseball in a 2008 poll of all 30 major league managers.Regarded as the game's premier "bad-ball hitter," Guerrero consistently hit balls thrown well outside the strike zone, a skill evident on August 14, 2009, when he hit a pitch after it bounced in front of home plate.
  • With his aggressive batting style, he hit more than 30 home runs (HR) in each of 8 seasons and surpassed 100 runs batted in (RBI) 10 times, though he had just 2 seasons with at least 65 walks.
  • In the first pitch of an at-bat, Guerrero hit 126 home runs, believed to be the most ever, and put 1,780 balls in play.On September 26, 2011, Guerrero surpassed Julio Franco as the all-time MLB leader for hits by a Dominican player.
  • (Adrián Beltré claimed the record from Guerrero in 2014.) He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2018.
