What is Vladimir Guerrero's Net Worth?

Vladimir Guerrero is a Dominican former professional baseball player who spent 16 seasons in the MLB and has a net worth of $50 million. A nine-time All Star, Vladimir Guerrero was widely recognized as one of the best all-around players in the league.

Early Life

Vladimir Alvino Guerrero Sr., was born on February 9, 1975, in Nizao, Dominican Republic. He was one of nine children in a humble home with no electricity, running water, and only two beds to share. He helped his grandfather pull cows home barehanded as a young boy, to which he later attributed to his ability to bat without wearing batting gloves.

MLB Career

Vladimir Guerrero was signed by the Montreal Expos as an amateur free agent in 1993 and eventually made his major league debut in 1996. He was criticized during his first season in 1997 for being too aggressive at the plate, and he led all major league outfielders in errors in 1997. In 1998, Guerrero's superior hand-eye coordination helped him to change things around in his career; although still aggressive at the plate, he had consistently high batting averages year after year. He continued to improve through 2003 until a back injury shortened his season.

After his injury, Guerrero was a free agent for the first time in his career, but was courted by several teams and eventually signed with the Anaheim Angels. He helped the Angels to five first place finishes in six years with an average of 32 homers a year for the first five years until injuries limited him to all career lows in 2009, and he became a full-time designated hitter. In 2010, during his designated hitting year, he signed a one-year deal with the Rangers and helped them reach the 2010 World Series. After a less impressive season as a designated hitter with the Orioles in 2011, Guerrero was unable to find a major league deal he liked. He eventually signed with the Blue Jays but ultimately opted out of his contract within the season. He struggled a bit trying to re-enter the game, and due to family issues, and two operations on his right knee, Guerrero eventually announced his retirement in 2013.

Guerrero was a nine-time All-Star, eight-time Silver Slugger Award winner, the 2004 AL MVP, and is enshrined in the Angels Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2018.

He finished his career with a .318 batting average to go along with 449 home runs, 2,590 hits, and 1,496 runs batted in.
