Max Muncy had amazing reaction to Fernando Tatis Jr.’s huge home run
Fernando Tatis Jr. joined some elite company on Thursday when he hit a ball out of Dodger Stadium. He also left one of his opponents completely impressed.
Tatis was batting in the top of the fourth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a runner on second and his team down 4-1. He blasted a hanging breaking ball from Tony Gonsolin to deep left field. The ball traveled out of the stadium, which is a rare feat.

That was incredible. Keep in mind that only four others have hit a ball out of Dodger Stadium during a game: Mike Piazza, Willie Stargell, Mark McGwire and Giancarlo Stanton.
Max Muncy’s reaction said it all.

How could you not be impressed?
The Dodgers won the game 8-3, so they’ll trade the embarrassment of the huge homer for the victory. But that sure was some blast by Tatis.
