Several MLB players honored their father this afternoon

Today is the perfect day to honor fathers. This is true for everyone, but it is even more so in a baseball context because of the famous father-son bond that exists at the ball.

And it shows today on the grounds of the Majors, where several players have chosen to honor their father in their own way.

And it’s always well thought out.

Besides the traditional pieces of equipment in blue, some have gone further. Steve Cishek, for example, had cleats made in the style of a father’s sneaker.

At the Jays, Charlie Montoyo had his son Alex pitch before the game as part of a good old ceremonial pitch.

The father also said he was more stressed for that than for the match as such.

Bo Bichette, he changed his song to show up at the bat. He decided to take “Sledgehammer” for today only.

Why? Because it was the song his father Dante used.

And finally, for Vladimir Guerrero Jr., it’s a bit more subtle.

He chose to honor his father by having the same stats as him (after 408 career games) starting the game against the Yankees…and he hit a long ball.
