The world needs more Super Vlad.

Vladimir Guerrero seems to be having a whole lot of fun these days. While retired, he’s still been seen around the baseball world.

He was inducted into the Canadian Baseball of Fame in June, recently watched his son participate in the Futures Games and is even showing up opposing pitchers in softball.

The now-42-year-old hit 449 home runs in his career, none of them were flashier than the one he showed off in an Instagram post on Sunday.

Guerrero was famous for making unlikely contact through his entire career, so he must have been drooling when this softball was sent on a line across the plate.

Wearing the same No. 27 jersey he wore for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Angels, Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles, Guerrero crushed a mammoth home run, dropped the bat and crossed his arms before the ball even left the yard.

Forget bat flips, Super Vlad’s bat-drop-and-pose technique not only provides a loud message, it also saves energy.

There’s no judging where that ball landed when it left the screen, but you can guarantee it was hit a long, long way.

The only thing missing from this video is a filter that provides the exit velocity.
