Fernando Tatis Jr. Literally Dances Through Steroid Chants at Wrigley Field
You know what they say? Dance like nobody’s chanting about your embarrassing use of performance enhancing drugs.
I doubt many road games here in the early part of 2023 are going to feature particularly gentle fans out in right field for Fernando Tatis Jr., now that he’s back from his PED suspension. You *knew* the right field bleachers at Wrigley Field would not be.
Which isn’t to say they were cruel or unfair, of course. When you use PEDs and get suspended, you’re going to hear it from the fans. That’s just a reality. Ryan Braun heard it for like a decade (and deserved every single scream). Cubs fans know their job out there.
So it was that the fans in right field were heckling Tatis to the tune of a “he’s on steroids” chant, loud enough to be picked up clearly on the opposing broadcast. Well done.
But I gotta also say well done to Tatis. *IF YOU ARE ALREADY IN* that situation – you shouldn’t be, but if you are – then you might as well have some fun with it. That’s what Tatis did last night, literally dancing as the crowd was chanting:
Nothing else you can do, though I will point out that there’s a chance that, even by acknowledging the chant a little bit, Tatis was letting it get to him. That’s what I’ll tell myself, anyway.
Also: no, I will not be taking any other questions about the right field bleachers chanting steroids at a right fielder at Wrigley Field. No history there. None at all. Nothing to discuss.
