Vladimir Guerrero Newsbeat

Sunday, April 28, 2019

Brett Anderson becomes first pitcher to face both Vladimir Guerrero and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Brett Anderson is 31 years of age, so he’s not that old.

But he made his major league debut in 2009 at age 21, pitching for four different teams, so he has faced his fair amount of batters.

On Saturday when he started against the Toronto Blue Jays for the Oakland Atheletics, Anderson had the distinct honor of being the first pitcher to face both Vladimir Guerrero and his son, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who made his much-anticipated big league debut on Friday.

Pondering two different points in connection with this:

1) How many pitchers have a chance to have pitched against both the Vladimirs Guerrero;

2) How this would compare to other father-son duos- I suspect the Griffeys would hold this record, but I could well be wrong.
