Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is slugging the ball in the minors, batting .398 with five home runs in 25 games

Thinking of big league ballparks with obstacles hitters can knock a ball off can lead you to The Warehouse at Camden Yards, the train tracks at Minute Maid Park and the lucky few may even get a splash into McCovey Cove at AT&T Park… you get the point, it’s a rare feat only true sluggers can obtain.
Vlad Guerrero Jr. is still in the minors and proving he is, in fact, a true slugger.
While playing in a AA game for the Toronto Blue Jays affiliate Monday, Guerrero pulled a ball so far over the fence for his fifth home run it ricocheted off a neighboring hotel. Oh yeah, and that was his second homer of that night.
Meanwhile, that morning, Guerrero did something that may be even more impressive. While filming a segment with MLB Network, the righty smacked a ball off the tee to the OPPOSITE field for a home run. Carlos Peña has hit a homer or two in his day, but his reaction here shows just how jaw dropping of a feat that truly is.
