Vlad 2.0 Goes Walk-Off Yard in Montréal
One swing can sure bring back a hella lotta memories.
Especially when it's the last pitch of a two-game exhibition series designed to rekindle MLB's interest in returning to a city it never shoulda left.
Not sure who was happier with that swing:
- Former Expo Warren Cromartie, who's leading the effort to lure the MLB back to Montréal,
- The original Vladimir Guerrero, Hall of Famer and proud dad, and/or
- Vladimir Guerrero Jr himself, who put a dynamic charge into an unforgettable moment.
Vlad the Dad happened to be where any father would.
Nearby, with video rolling:
Clearly, Vlad the Younger had one of the best mentors available.
He must've seen highlights like these a kajillion times, complete with a first-hand narration that covered every little detail as to how it's all done:
The English-speaking broadcasters alluded to being speechless, and then continued speaking.
The Québecois announcers harbored no such illusions. This was a moment joyeux, and they were gonna savor it on behalf of baseball fans everywhere:
Vlad the Younger's MLB highlight reel has its first entry, and he's not even in the MLB yet.
From the looks of things, he will be. Soon.
