Toronto Blue Jays superstar Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is grabbing everyone’s attention with his prolific displays of power. We sat down with the second-generation slugger to design a bat that showcases what matters most to him: his family. Featuring a blend of Blue Jays and Expos design elements that pay homage to his father’s MLB career, a Dominican Republic flag center brand and ‘FAMILY’ etched on the end brand, this is a bat built for one thing: PLAKATA.
On his Pro Prime model, Guerrero Jr. wanted to showcase what means most to him: family. The MLB Prime script mirrors the Expos' branding in a nod to his father's illustrious career.
The iconic Louisville Slugger shield center brand features the Dominican Republic flag, paying homage to Vladdy's home country.
In his knob medallion, Vladdy chose an iconic image of him and his dad from when he was a child - and included the number 27, which they both shared.
