Just 18-years-old, Fernando Tatis Jr. is playing in his second season in the San Diego Padres organization. The 6-foot-4 shortstop plays for Fort Wayne in the Midwest League this spring.
He is the son of Fernando Tatis Sr., an eleven-year veteran of the major-leagues. The senior Tatis played for five different teams during 1997 and 2010. His best season came in 1999 when he hit 34 HR and 113 RBI for the St. Louis Cardinals.
The younger Tatis is confident of his skills on both offense and defense, but understands he still has much to learn. He spent time with his father when he was still a youngster, so he knows what to expect in his attempt to reach the majors like his father.
