Baseball players are reporting for Spring Training while gearing up for the regular season, which is about to start just a little over the month. While many players are bracing up their skills on the diamond, the Blue Jays’ marquee Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is showing the world that his violent swings aren’t limited to only Major League Baseball. 

A few weeks ago, during batting practice in his hometown, Guerrero Jr. showed that his swings could easily go 500 ft away. And now, the two-time all-star player is showing he can have a violent swing without a baseball bat. 

Can the pro ballplayer Vladimir Guerrero Jr. be a pro at another sport?

In a recent clip shared by Takin Yanks, Blue Jays’ slugger can be seen getting ready to hit a golf ball. Soon as the ballplayer hit the ball, he left people around him trying to look for the ball and wondering where it went. 

The shot itself was as violent one, if not bigger, as Guerrero Jr. takes while being on the diamond. However, if the slugger ever decides to give more time to golf and try his hand at it professionally, he might have a shot at going pro.
