Fernando Tatis Jr. unleashed an incredible bat flip for his 50th career big-league homer.
During Friday night’s 16-1 evisceration of the Seattle Mariners, Tatis connected on his 50th career big fly. His latest bat flip had all the sauce you could ever hope for on it, as his most recent dinger sailed deep into the San Diego night sky. As long as Tatis continues to play at this level, it is not a matter of if but a matter of when the Padres will win their first World Series in franchise history.
Take a good look at Tatis’ awesome bat flip to celebrate 50 career home runs in the big leagues.
San Diego Padres: Fernando Tatis’ latest bat flip is simply a work of art
With their effortless 15-run victory over the Mariners, San Diego improved to 28-17 on the season. They are in a first-place tie with the San Francisco Giants for the best record in the National League. San Diego has won nine of its last 10 games and improved to 16-10 on the year at Petco Park. Interestingly enough, the Padres are even better on the road at 12-7 this season.
Tatis is a big reason behind the baseball renaissance of the early 2020s. He plays the game with a flair and passion that has long been missing from the league’s best players. Thankfully, he is not alone in trying to make baseball fun for the masses once again. He has guys like Ronald Acuña Jr. of the Atlanta Braves and Trevor Bauer of the rival Los Angeles Dodgers backing him up in the NL.
