A Vladimir Guerrero Jr. homerun against the New York Yankees seems inevitable at the moment. The 2023 Home Run Derby Champion went yard against the Yankees once again and then silenced the Yankee fans with his trademark shushing celebration.

After the Yankees lost the first game 3-0, their offense fired up in this game as they raced to a 9-2 lead. With the team down by seven runs, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a solo home run in the seventh inning to cut the deficit to six.

As his home run brought out the boos from the home crowd, he went on to shush them by placing his finger on his lips while running around the bases. The 25-year-old’s celebration has now become a topic of discussion as there were some users on social media who were not pleased with it as it came when his team were losing the game by a huge margin.

The slugger would later speak on this and said he does this celebration regardless of the situation.

It’s something that I do everywhere regardless the situation. I actually started the whole thing right after 2020 and in ’21 and to this day. Just enjoy the moment. Everybody does different things, like the jump and everything else and the hop, and that’s what I do and that’s what I like.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. said as per his interpreter as per AP News.

Speaking of the game, the Blue Jays did go on to score five more runs to make it a 9-8 ballgame. However, they fell just short in the end as the Yankees held on to level the series against one of their bitter rivals.
