spring squad against the Phillies at the Carpenter Complex.  Guerrero, who was granted free agency by the Orioles last October 30 batted second for the games first four innings and didn’t play in the field.  When ask through an interpreter if he would speak to the media all he would say was “Not today.”  Guerrero, 37, has played 16 years in the majors for Montreal, Anaheim, Texas and Baltimore with his 2,590 hits being the most by any native of the Dominican Republic.

For those at Vladimir Guerrero’s first game with the Jays organization today they saw the players treated to a special cooling element courtesy of Joe Cynar the Philies minor league equipment manager.

Installed in both the home and visiting dugouts was a water mist system that cooled the players.

This will be helpful during the upcoming Gulf Coast League season starting in June when 90-degrees is a cold spell in the area.
