New York Yankees fans booed Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Toronto). He did not let go of players who openly shouted ‘Anti-Yankees’. Guerrero Jr. was not discouraged either. As if enjoying booing, he recorded a 50% on-base percentage on the Yankees expedition.
In an interview with the Dominican Republic in November last year, Guerrero Jr. said, “It’s good to play in New York, but I don’t want to be a Yankees player. I won’t go to the Yankees even if I die.” He even added fuel to the fire by saying, “I like making Yankees fans discouraged.”
This remark spread to the United States through social media, and the New York Post, a New York local journalist, also reported this news and sarcastically said, “It is common to change your mind in front of money.”
Until last year, Guerrero Jr. appeared in 65 games against the Yankees, hitting 13 homers, 41 RBIs and batting average of 0.289. He hit 10 home runs in Yankee Stadium alone. It was a fun performance to play against the Yankees.
Toronto is playing an away game at Yankee Stadium from the 22nd. Yankees fans booed as if they had only waited for this moment. Either way, Guerrero Jr. continued his strong run against the Yankees. In the game on the 22nd, he recorded 2 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats, including a 2-run homer in the 1st inning, and Toronto defeated the Yankees 6-1. Toronto lost 2-3 on the 23rd, but Guerrero Jr. hit a double against Gerrit Cole in the first inning.
However, it seems that Yankees fans are not the only ones who have been stimulated. Guerrero Jr. was hit on the elbow by Greg Weissert’s pitch in the ninth inning on the 22nd and walked to first base. In the process, he had a war of words with Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Rizzo first raised his voice towards Guerrero Jr.
After the game, he emphasized again that he had no intention of retracting his remarks in November last year, “I will not go to the Yankees even if I die.토토사이트” Toronto will play at Yankee Stadium until the 24th. Will Guerrero Jr. be able to discourage Yankees fans in the final game of the series?
