Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a home run out of Dodger Stadium. Just how far did it go, and is it too little, too late for his MVP chances?
Tatis Jr. still remains among the favorites to win National League MVP, and he made yet another statement against the Dodgers on Thursday night.
The Padres star hit a home run out of Dodger Stadium, which is absolutely insane when you think about it. The highlight itself confirms Tatis’ feat.
The Padres won’t make the playoffs, which definitely impacts Tatis’ MVP chances. He hasn’t played well down the stretch, highlighted by flaws in judgement and a viral clip showing him arguing with teammate Manny Machado in the dugout. It’s not a great look.
How far did Fernando Tatis Jr.’s home run go?
Tatis’ home run went an estimated 467 feet. That’s incredibly far, obviously, and is an exclamation point on what’s been an outstanding season for Tatis Jr.
Whether he wins NL MVP is a moot point for now, as he’s made the Padres look quite good for signing him to a massive 13-year contract before the start of the season.
Longest home runs in Dodger Stadium
Willie Stargell hit a home run an estimated 506 feet, so while Tatis Jr.’s blast will likely made the list of longest home runs ever at Dodger Stadium, it is not the longest.
