Fernando Tatis Jr. Aims to Break Into Padres Lineup

Fernando Tatis Jr. has fond memories of hanging out with this father in major-league ballparks.  Now he is vying for a spot on the San Diego Padres roster this spring, although the 20-year-old has completed only two pro seasons.  He will likely start the season at Double-A, but he could easily earn a promotion later in the year.

Fernando Tatis Sr. had an 11-year career split among the Texas Rangers, St. Louis Cardinals, Montreal Expos, Baltimore Orioles, and New York Mets.  The third baseman’s best season came in 1999 when he hit 34 home runs and 107 RBI for the St. Louis Cardinals.
