As Vladimir Guerrero Jr. went from the teenaged son of a former big-leaguer to the most feared hitter in the minor-leagues, Arden Zwelling was there. In this storytelling episode, he details Guerrero's fast-track through the Blue Jays system. From English classes in Lansing to defensive lessons in Buffalo, this is a behind-the-scenes look at the development of baseball's top prospect.

This story is produced, mixed and sound designed by Amil Delic, and told by Arden Zwelling.
