Yankees fans serenaded by Fernando Tatis Jr. with the chant “steroids”; Padres outfielder bathes in it
Fernando Tatis Jr. I’m sure he enjoys being the new villain of Major League Baseball.
San Diego Padres the outfielder missed the entire 2022 season with a motorcycle fall injury, but right before he was due to return, he was suspended for 80 games due to doping.
Tatis returned earlier this year but will be mocked for the rest of his career. It certainly was no different from the Bronx on a Friday night.

In the New York Padres game against the Yankees, Bleacher Creatures right field hit Tatis with a long “steroids” taunt.
Most players will ignore this and probably hate it, but Fernando Tatis Jr. it’s not the majority of the players.
The star outfielder seemed to love every second and acted as a conductor of ridicule.
Oh, and Tatis didn’t end there – he landed a moon shot on the upper deck, threw an epic bat and landed a fake jump shot around third base in San Diego’s 5-1 win in the Bronx.
This isn’t the first time Tatis has ridiculed the ridicule. When the Chicago Cubs hit him with the “He’s on steroids” chant, he’s actually danced to it.
Tatis said he “inadvertently” took medicine containing clostebola banned substance as he was treating a case of ringworm.

“I had to use the resources at my disposal to make sure that what I took was free of banned substances. I didn’t,” he said in a statement.
Tatis said he initially appealed the suspension, but “I realized that the reason for this result was my fault and for that reason I decided to start serving my suspension immediately.
“I have no excuse for my mistake and I would never do anything to cheat or disrespect this game that I love,” he added.
