Fernando Tatis Jr. still doesn’t care about baseball’s unwritten rules.
On Monday Fernando Tatis Jr. stole everyone’s attention when he broke an unwritten (and stupid) rule in baseball when he hit a grand slam off an 3-0 pitch. Now, just 24 hours later he’s breaking another rule and we’re totally here for it.
In the second game of the San Diego Padres’ series with the Texas Rangers, Tatis Jr. took the lead on base stealing when the Padres were up by 6 in the 4th, with two outs on Ian Gibaut (who threw behind Manny Machado last night one pitch after the grand slam).
Where do we sign up for the Tatis Jr. fan club?
MLB players and managers from around the league have stepped up for Tatis Jr.
Fans and players have stepped up to Tatis Jr’s defense citing that unwritten rules are … kinda lame. And why in the world should he be ridiculed for going his job, and doing it well?
Perhaps if the Rangers don’t want to be dominated, they could simply just be better at playing baseball.
