Good morning, Sports fanatics!   Davey Mac here with a pumped-up Sports Report for ya!   Happy shocker at Wimbledon!   Wembanyama leaving Las Vegas…because of Britney Spears?   Tim Tebow finds a new sport!   And more!   But first!

Major League Baseball held its annual Home Run Derby last night…and Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. of the Toronto Blue Jays won the Home Run Derby…and because his father…Hall Of Famer Vladimir Guerrero, Senior…also won the Derby…they are now the first father-son duo to win the event!  Pretty cool!

Vladimir Guerrero, Sr. won the event in 2007 …and Vlad Junior was there in attendance!   How awesome is that!   Can you imagine if we get a Vladimir Guerrero The Third who’s also awesome like his family?   I think there’s a chance!

Even though he never wore pinstripes (I’m an admitted proud Yankee fan), Vlad Senior was one of my favorite players.   Old school guy: no batting gloves, no wrist bands, no elbow protector and shin guards while at the plate…just him and his bat.   And he could hit anything.   What a slugger.

What a cool moment in this fantastic Summertime event.   Congrats, Guerrero Family!   You guys can straight-up HIT!   I’m Davey Mac and that’s my two cents!
