Toronto Blue Jays fans already love Vladimir Guerrero Jr. but the rest of the baseball world is growing to love him, too.
The 22-year-old phenom shook Coors Field with a 468-foot bomb to lead the American League past the National League in the All-Star Game. The performance earned him the MVP award, making him the first Blue Jays player and the youngest player ever to win it.
Guerrero Jr.’s special performance was celebrated across social media after the game. Here are some of the best reactions.
