Fernando Tatis Jr. has become one of baseball’s best players. His father is known in part for holding one of the most remarkable records in the sport. All of that came together to make a bit of history on Friday night.
On Apr. 23, 1999, Fernando Tatis Sr., then a member of the St. Louis Cardinals, hit two grand slams in the same inning at Dodger Stadium. That feat is unlikely to ever be matched solely due to the rarity of it. However, on Friday night, exactly 22 years later, Tatis Jr. hit two home runs in the same game at Dodger Stadium, both off Clayton Kershaw.
