Vladimir Guerrero BioVladimir Alvino Guerrero (born February 9, 1976 in Don Gregorio, Nizao, Dominican Republic), and known in his native Dominican Republic as Miquéas (Spanish for Micah), was a Major League Baseball right fielder who played most recently for the Baltimore Orioles and, before that, for the Texas Rangers, having been traded by the Los Angeles Angels following the 2009 season. It appears, as of 2013, that his long career has come to an end.
In 2004, he was voted the American League's Most Valuable Player Award. An eight-time All-Star, he was widely recognized as one of the best all-around players in Major League Baseball because he regularly hit for power, had a high average, stole bases, and had one of the strongest outfield arms in baseball. Before a game against the Dodgers at Anaheim Stadium, he threw a home run from home plate to dead center field for 400 feet with his bare arm. Guerrero is also regarded as the game's premier "bad ball hitter" for his ability to crush balls thrown outside of the strike zone.
Veteran pitcher Jamie Moyer described Guerrero's style: "I say this respectfully: he's a freak. He's a very good hitter without a strike zone. He can hit the ball in, hit the ball off the plate away, hit the ball up and go get the ball that's down. He covers the plate, and beyond."
One of nine children, Guerrero is the younger brother of major leaguer Wilton Guerrero, who also played with the Montreal Expos. He is also the cousin of current minor leaguer Cristian Guerrero of the Harrisburg Senators.¹
