Blue Jays: a 100th long ball for Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Blue Jays: 100th long ball for Vladimir Guerrero son


At just 23 years and 182 days old, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. reached 100 career home runs, becoming the youngest player to do so in Toronto Blue Jays history on Wednesday evening.

The Dominican accomplished this feat more quickly than legendary slugger Carlos Delgado, who still leads Jays history with 336 homers, and who had hit 100 balls from the limits of the field at his 26th birthday.

Guerrero Jr. stretched his arms in the first inning of a game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Rogers Center. It was his 28th long ball of the year. This time it was a solo slap to left field, his first swing of the night, which just crossed the fence.

The son of the former glory of the Montreal Expos is the 12th player the youngest player to hit 100 home runs, but the seventh to also hit 100 doubles.
