MLB: Toronto Blue Jays-Workouts Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays face off against the A’s for a 3 game series which ordinarily would just be a normal series between two mediocre teams. But it’s anything but ordinary.

Today is the the Major League debut of Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Vlad finally arrived at the Rogers Centre

Then took some BP: (listen to that glorious sound!)

And if you really haven’t followed the full Vlad story from its beginning (why not?!), I strongly encourage you to read this the brilliant and thorough Project piece by Laura Armstrong titled ‘Vlad to the bone’ (it also gives us a tantalizing glimpse of the class of 2021!)

And here are your FAQs about Vlad’s debut tonight

MLB history and numbers say let your Vladimir Guerrero Jr. dreams run wild

With the long wait over, it’s time to enjoy the Vladimir Guerrero Jr. ride

And apparently Vlad will make the Jays games must see TV (makes a change i guess)

Is Vlad ready for his closeup? Yep, sounds like it

No doubt we would all love for Vlad’s debut to go well (him hitting a homer would just be the icing on the cake) but who was the youngest player to homer for each team?

And who was the youngest for the Jays? (it surprised me).

To end, there is not much more for me to say other than let’s enjoy this momentous day...

...and Go Vlad Go!
