Watch this side-by-side footage of Vlad Jr. and his pops.
Spring training baseball isn't known for producing memorable sports moments, but last night in Montreal was the exception.
With the Toronto Blue Jays and St. Louis Cardinals knotted at 0-0 in the bottom of the 9th inning, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., wearing his father's #27, stepped up to the plate at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium and blasted a game-winning home run that drove the crowd into a frenzy. Olympic Stadium, the place where Vlad Jr.'s father spent most of his career bashing home runs, had not seen a walk-off like that since May 7, 2003 - when Vladimir Guerrero Sr. lifted the Montreal Expos over the Padres, according to NBC.
In eight years with the Expos, Vlad Sr. hit .323 with 234 home runs, including three Silver Sluggers and four All-Star appearances, as well as 123 stolen bases and 84 outfield assists. His son, a 19-year old third basemen, may not play in the majors until the 2019 season but he is considered the top prospect in the Blue Jays organization so it wouldn't be a surprise if he gets called up sometime this season.
