Vladdy Jr will attempt to make history
The Blue Jays 20-year old slugger will become the youngest player to ever partake in the Derby when he attempts to outslug Matt Chapman in the first round. Chapman was a late replacement for Christian Yelich who withdrew from the competition due to a wonky back.
This will also mark the first time a father and son duo have participated in the Home Run Derby. The elder Guerrero won the Derby in 2007 while a member of the Los Angeles Angels, Guerrero Jr. will attempt to duplicate his father’s fortune with his performance tonight.
In 2007, Vladdy Sr. out-blasted Jays outfielder Alex Rios in the finals of the derby at AT&T Park in San Francisco to win the event.
