Fernando Tatis has officially retired


Former major leaguer Fernando Tatis has officially retired from baseball, according to this report from El Deportista (in Spanish, obviously). Tatis auditioned for the Orioles in early 2013 but wasn’t able to get a minor league deal. He spent 2014 with Vaqueros Laguna of the Mexican League. He hit .241/.348/.367 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 92 plate appearances.

Tatis spent parts of 11 seasons in the major leagues, playing for the Rangers, Cardinals, Expos, Orioles, and Mets. Over nearly 3,500 plate appearances, he hit .265/.344/.442 with 113 home runs and 448 RBI.

Tatis etched his name in baseball history when he became the first player ever to hit two grand slams in one inning on April 23, 1999 against Chan Ho Park of the Dodgers.
