“I’m proud of you son” Guerrero Jr. wins the Home Run Derby following his father… Ohtani absent

 For the first time in the history of the Home Run Derby in the Major League (MLB) All-Star Game, the ‘rich man’ was born.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (24, Toronto Blue Jays) pushed Randy Arosarena (28, Tampa Bay Rays) 25-23 in the MLB Home Run Derby final held at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, USA on the 11th and won the championship prize of 1 million dollars (about 12 90 million won) in their hands.

Guerrero Jr., who batted first in the final, hit 25 balls, including two 445-foot homers, into the stands. Arosarena, who hit 35 home runs in the second round, only hit 23 home runs in the final.

Guerrero Jr., who lost to Pete Alonso (29, New York Mets) in 2019 and missed the championship, became the first Toronto player to become the main character of the Home Run Derby. As Guerrero Jr. took first place, he set a new record of being the first father to win after 16 years following his father, Guerrero Senior (48), who won the Home Run Derby with the Los Angeles Angels in 2007.

Guerrero Senior said on social media,메이저사이트 “It was a great race. Son, I am proud of you.”

The record for most Home Run Derby wins is held by Ken Griffey Jr. (former Seattle Mariners) three times (1994, 1998, 1999). Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels, 32), who topped the MLB home run in the first half of this year, did not participate in the Home Run Derby.

The All-Star Game kicks off at the same location on the 12th.
