It was only a matter of time before someone blasted a home run at the MLB All-Star Game at Coors Field.
In the top of the third inning, Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. sent a shot off of Milwaukee’s Corbin Burnes that went 468 feet to left field to give the American League a 2-0 lead.
It was the 200th home run in All-Star Game history, according to Fox’s Joe Buck.
At 22 years and 119 days old, he is the second youngest player to hit one at the Midsummer Classic, according to MLB Stats. The youngest? Former Reds catcher Johnny Bench at 21 years, 228 days in 1969.
It wasn’t Guerrero’s first highlight of the game. In the first inning, he sent a liner up the middle that forced Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer to duck. After Guerrero was thrown out at first, he went over to hug Scherzer.
