[edit] Biographical information

Overshadowed by his younger brother Vladimir Guerrero, Wilton Guerrero had some talent in his own right. In 2000, he went 13 for 53 (.283) as a pinch hitter, and hit .360 in 6 games as a designated hitter. Also, in the last three games of 2000 in which Wilton hit a home run, Vladimir hit a home run as well.

The two most similar players through 2006, according to the similarity scores method, are Bob Fisher and Mike Sharperson.

Guerrero was suspended for 8 games and fined $1,000 on July 1, 1997 for using a corked bat.

Gabby Guerrero, who is a nephew of both Wilton and Vladimir, is a minor league outfielder. Two other brothers, Eleazar Guerrero and Julio Cesar Guerrero played in the minor leagues. Another nephew, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., was one of the top international prospect signees in 2015, and three other nephews have also either been signed by major league teams or are considered to-rank amateur prospects in the Dominican Republic. One of Wilton's major activities after retiring as a player has been to run the Guerrero Family Baseball Academy, set up by his brother Vladimir in the D.R.
