In a hilarious incident on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, San Diego Padres’ Fernando Tatis Jr was captured dancing and showing off some of his exclusive moves as he was subjected to long booing from the Chicago Cubs fan. The incident took place in the fifth inning when the home crowd chanted “He’s on steroids.”

Tatis Jr returned to Major League Baseball a few days ago after serving his 80-game suspension. He was charged with using foreign substances while he was injured. This made him lose the entirety of the 2022 season. Ever since his return, fans of other teams have continued to chant similar rhymes when he takes the field to play.

Over the weekend, Tatis recorded his first home run of the season in his third game back with the Padres. In his defense, Tatis admitted that he had unwittingly taken Clostebol, a banned medication substance, to treat his ringworm quickly. He had appealed the suspension at the start but decided to withdraw it and accept his punishment as he realized his mistake.

Just before the 202 seasons, Tatis signed a huge 12-year, $340 million deal to stay in San Diego. Things went downhill for him when he injured his wrist in an accident just before 2022. Tatis would arrive at the spring training with a broken wrist. On further examination, he was sidelined for a few months which would see him return at the near end of the season.

It did not work out as Tatis would have planned. He was found to using a performance-enhancing drug and was slapped with an 80-game suspension. Before his eventual return to the Padres, he was taking part in minor league games. He recorded 11 RBIs and 6 home runs in seven minor league games.

Well sadly for Padres, those dance moves by Tatis were the only enjoyable highlight for them in the game. The Cubs hammered them 6-0 to take the first game of the series. The Padres and Tatis did bounce back though on Wednesday night as they won 5-3 to even up the four game series at 1-1. Tatis drove in three runs thanks to a pair of singles, to silence his critics.

Before making his return to the Majors, Tatis did mention that no matter what he does, people will call him a cheater. He added that he is not thinking about that and is happy to be back with his boys. They will enter the field of play on Thursday hoping to close down the gap on top of the National League West standings.
