Fans love to see sluggers hit home runs and see how far they can go.
Some are better than others at really smacking the ball with authority and sending it way out of the stadium.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is one of the first people you think of when talking about hitters who can absolutely crush the ball.
The Toronto Blue Jays‘ slugging first baseman has had himself another solid season at the dish, hitting .273 with 31 homers, 96 RBI, and an .811 OPS, but the 23-year-old is leading in a very important category right now.
He’s had 259 hard-hit balls this year, which is the most in all of baseball.

Guerrero Mashes Baseballs
For context, hard-hit balls are balls that come off the bat at 95 mph or more.
Clearly, Guerrero hasn’t had any trouble doing that.
The ball flies off of his bat.
He can hit it very far and very hard with complete and utter ease.
Blue Jays fans love to watch him hit, as do fans all across baseball.
Even if it doesn’t clear the wall, it’s always fun to watch a guy like Guerrero completely mash baseballs and hit them as hard as he’s been hitting them.
He’s 10 hard-hit balls ahead of his Blue Jays teammate, Bo Bichette, who sits in third place on the list of sluggers with the most.
But Guerrero sits alone at the top with just a few games left to go in the 2022 season.
We’ll see if he can barrel up some more balls this week and in the postseason.
