Watch out! Fernando Tatis Jr receives a ball to the head in Padres vs Phillies

On the night of Friday, August 20, there was a moment to remember, since Fernando Tatis Jr. made his debut as a center fielder for the San Diego Padres in the showdown against the Philadelphia Phillies. However, not everything was ‘honey on flakes’ for the Dominican, because in one of his turns at bat got hit in the head that worried because of what has been seen throughout MLB 2021.

Fernando Tatis Jr. surprised the MLB middle by now covering center field for the San Diego Padres, with Friday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies being the first time in his career that he did so.

However, the Dominican did not come out unscathed that night since in the eighth inning he received a blow to the head, the product of a misplaced pitch by Ian Kennedy and which also caused him to enter a horse race.

Fernando Tatis Jr. is now outfielder for the San Diego Padres as part of an attempt to have him in their line up for the remainder of the 2021 MLB Season but not to harm his shoulder injury.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
