“You’re a drug addict~”
Fernando Tatis Jr. (24, San Diego Padres) still hears criticism from away fans. San Diego played an away game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, USA on the 26th (hereinafter Korean time). Tatis started right field 1 and recorded 1 hit and 1 walk in 4 at-bats.
Tatis returned to the major leagues on the 21st in an away game against the Arizona Diamondbacks after completing a wrist injury, surgery, and disciplinary action for taking a banned substance. After 4 straight matches against Arizona, San Diego started its 3rd match against the Cubs on the 26th.
After returning, Tatis will play right field instead of shortstop. Apparently, outfielders can hear the live reaction(?) of the crowd a little better than infielders. Moreover, unlike the KBO League, which mobilizes cheerleaders and cheerleaders, the Major League is a culture of voluntary cheering.
Barstool Sports posted on Twitter that day, “Cubs fans chanting “HE’S ON STEROIDS” to Fernando Tatis Jr.” It means that Cubs fans sarcastically called Tatis a ‘drug boy’. But Tatis’ reaction was even more surprising.
Tatis responded (?) with a dance, shaking both pelvises on the spot. He didn’t even shake his pelvis for a moment, but continued the dance naturally, using both his arms. Afterwards, he pointed to the outfield crowd with his ungloved right hand. It is a dance(?) for Cubs fans. 스포츠토토
ESPN said, “Cubs fans taunted Tatis in the stands, so he responded.” Barstool Sports said, “He just danced to it (mocking).” In other words, it should be seen that he showed his will to ignore the criticism of the Cubs fans as Tatis.
A dance video of about 15 to 20 seconds was posted on Barstool Sports’ Twitter and Bleacher Report’s website. In any case, Tatis can go through something like this on his future expeditions. In 5 games this season, 4 hits in 22 at-bats, batting average 0.182, 1 home run, 1 RBI, 2 runs, OPS 0.568. The feeling of hitting is still not normal.
