San Diego Padres superstar Fernando Tatis Jr. launched a 419 foot blast over the center field wall off Diamondbacks pitcher Miguel Castro. The two-run home run put the Padres up 4-0.
Tatis stood there to admire his homer and then he does a epic bat flip, while looking into the dugout to pump up his teammates.
The 24 year-old Tatis is a talented and electric player. He has not had the kind of season that he was expected to have. Tatis is coming back from an injury and 80 game substance abuse suspension, that wiped away the 2022 season for him.
In 2021, Tatis Jr. put up superstar stats. He hit 42 home runs with 97 RBIs, 25 stolen bases and a .282 batting average.
This season, Tatis has 20 home runs, 65 RBIs, 20 stolen bases and has a .268 batting average in 103 games.
Tatis is a young and talented baseball player, who has all the ability in the world. He is just scratching the surface as a MLB player.
