Everybody's Got A Record: Vladimir Guerrero Edition

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball player holds some kind of record.**

When it comes to consistency, there was only one player as good as Vlad Guerrero. Both Lou Gehrig and Vlad hold the record for most consecutive season with 25 or more home runs and a batting average above .300 at 11.

Vlad also has a weird record that can really only be applied to current players. Somehow it was determined that Vlad swings at the highest percentage of pitches that are outside the strike zone. Amazingly 45.5% of his swings are at balls that are outside the strike zone.
