With the baseball world watching, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. did not disappoint one bit, even though technically he didn’t win.
Amidst some blow back that he shouldn't have been included based on him not actually making the MLB All-Star Game, the Blue Jays 3B became the youngest contestant to enter in the MLB All-Star.
But history didn't stop there. The son of Vladimir Guerrero Sr. set a single-round record of 29, defeating Matt Chapman of the Oakland Athletics.
The 20-year-old beat Josh Hamilton's record of 28 set back at the 2008 derby. Averaging 421.5 feet on his dingers, Vladdy's 3rd home run travelled a ridiculous distance of 476 feet.
In the second round, he went toe-to-toe with Joc Pederson, where the two sluggers needed a third tiebreaker to determine the winner.
Guerrero Jr. went on to win it by a score of 40-39 to advance to the final. In the final round, Vladdy blasted another 22, but it wasn't enough, as Pete Alonso walked away as the winner with 23.
Even though Vladdy didn't win, the sports world was in awe with his performance.
