At long last, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is sending baseballs into outer space and what a sight it is to behold.

Guerrero Jr. hit the first two home runs of his career for the Toronto Blue Jays during Tuesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants.

The 20-year-old showed off his prodigious power, rocketing a 438-foot bomb over the center-field wall, which flew off his bat at 111.3 miles per hour during the first inning.

Here’s another angle of Guerrero’s first career home run.

It shouldn’t be altogether surprising, but Guerrero somehow outdid himself in the sixth inning.

Facing a 2-2 count with no outs, Guerrero absolutely destroyed an offering from Giants reliever Reyes Moronta, sending the ball 451 feet with an exit velocity of 113.7 miles per hour, once again to deep center. There’s a reason why he was the consensus best prospect in baseball, and Jays fans are in for a special ride.

Guerrero is now the youngest Blue Jays player to hit a home run in franchise history, surpassing Danny Ainge. At this rate, Guerrero Jr. could tear down some more records in short order.
