One of the most beloved Montreal Expos of all time wants to know if he should don the club's cap if he's elected to the Hall of Fame.

Vladimir Guerrero, who will be on the 2017 Hall of Fame ballot, took to Twitter to poll fans on the question.

Guerrero made his debut with the Expos in 1996 and went on to play the next eight seasons with the club. He joined the Anaheim Angels as a free agent after the 2003 season.

He also had one-season stints with the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles.

Guerrero is seen as a lock to make the Hall of Fame. He was a nine-time all star and had 12 seasons with at least 25 homers.

He finished with 2,590 hits, 449 homers and 1,496 runs batted in.

He never batted lower than .290 in his final 15 seasons despite a well-known penchant for swinging at balls outside the strike zone. Guerrero hit above .300 for 12 straight years.
