MLB: Great company! Vladdy Guerrero Jr. joins a select group with DiMaggio and Juan González

The dominican Vladimir Guerrero Jr. just keep rolling. The 22-year-old star appears to have caught a second wind down the stretch, hitting his 42nd home run of the season, one behind Shohei ohtani for the MLB leadership.

The home run also gave Guerrero Jr his 100th RBI of the season, the first year he reached that milestone, but surely not his last with the Toronto Blue Jays:

He is the third player in American League history with a season of 40 homers and 100 RBIs before age 23, joining Joe DiMaggio (1937) and Puerto Rican Juan Igor González (1992).

With three home runs in this series against the New York Yankees, Guerrero has hit three HRs in a series eight times in 2021, the most in American League history and the second most in MLB history. (Giancarlo Stanton , 2017).

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
