There's hustle, and there's Fernando Tatis Jr.'s scoring-on-a-popup-to-second-base (!) hustle
I would like you to take a look at the photo below. In it, Pirates infielder Kevin Newman makes a catch on an incredibly routine popup to second base off the bat of Hunter Renfroe in Sunday's Padres-Pirates game at PNC Park.
Now what if I told you somebody tagged up at third base and scored on that ordinary, shallow popup?
Well, first a caveat -- not just "somebody," but Padres rookie Fernando Tatis Jr., who's quickly amassing a reputation as one of the most electrifying players in the game today. He pulled this off on that popup in Sunday's game, and it's just unreal:
This isn't technically a steal of home, but it also sort of is one anyway? What a play by Tatis -- and especially the way he slid in under the tag, as confirmed via replay review.
The kid's got a knack for doing wild things, so you'd best pay attention!
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
