He even gives us some inside coverage... like the drama surrounding his throwing out the first pitch last season - a toss that injured a crouched Don Baylor at Catcher when the 1979 AL MVP leaned a little too far on an aged femur...
Vlad is nothing if not politic, praising the Angels organization before delving into the small tragedy that unfolded around Baylor.
Thanks to the Angels for giving me the honor of ceremonial first pich the last year at the Angel´s Stadium. pic.twitter.com/2DDyaIWzuk— Vladimir Guerrero (@VladGuerrero27) March 23, 2015
...in addition to discussing the incident where Baylor was injured, without gloating he reminds everyone that the ceremony uniting the two MVPs was his signing with the Angels and retiring a Halo and then throwing out the pitch to Baylor who had recently re-joined the team as hitting coach 35 years after his MVP season in Anaheim.
I felt very sad about what happened to Don Baylor when I threw the ceremonial first pitch to celebrate my retirement with the Angels.— Vladimir Guerrero (@VladGuerrero27) March 23, 2015
He follows up with more detail...
Then I called him several times to be aware of your health. I have much respect for Don Baylor and his legacy in baseball.— Vladimir Guerrero (@VladGuerrero27) March 23, 2015
Seriously, all along, we all knew Vlad was a great guy, and now his Twitter account confirms these feelings.
