Padres’ Fernando Tatis Jr. hilariously forced by fans to settle age-old debate
Fernando Tatis Jr. is a fun guy. He is a fantastic combination of talent and charisma. And he just won himself even more fans with a simple gesture he made in the middle of a game between the San Diego Padres and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Here is one fan in the bleachers hollering for Tatis’ help to settle one of the most polarizing and important questions in the history of mankind.

Whether you agree with Tatis’ choice or not, you got to love how he brought himself to entertain such a hilarious question from a fan. There are a lot of ways to be a star in the game of baseball, but even if you’re hitting just .220 and strikes out often, what the Padres’ shortstop did could still make a player feel loved by the fans — except that Tatis is also a so much better hitter.
On the season, Tatis is hitting .282 and has 36 home runs and 81 RBIs. His 1.003 OPS is third-best in the majors, as of this writing. He is going to be one of the faces of baseball — if he isn’t one already.
The Padres, however, will need more from Tatis if they are to make the boat to the postseason. They have fallen out of the race in the NL West with the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants pulling away.
