Freddie Freeman’s son put his dad on hot seat over Fernando Tatis Jr. meeting

Freddie Freeman’s son Charlie is a huge Fernando Tatis Jr. fan. This week at the MLB All-Star Game festivities, Charlie was looking all over the place for Tatis. He finally got a chance to meet the San Diego Padres star and was elated.

The thing is, the meeting wouldn’t have been possible without his dad making the NL All-Star team. In fact, Freddie says he was taking some heat from his son to improve his play to ensure an invite to the All-Star Game. Why? All so Charlie could meet Tatis Jr.

Freddie told the story on MLB Network Tuesday.

“Two months ago I’m hitting .220. And Charlie goes, ‘Daddy, I’m going to need you to start playing better so I can go to the All-Star Game and meet Fernando,'” Freeman said.

Freeman has picked it up since then. He entered the All-Star break batting .274 with 19 home runs, 58 runs scored and 50 RBIs. He earned his trip to the All-Star Game … much to his son’s delight.

Freddie Freeman is a four-time All-Star and the likely NL MVP winner for this year. And if these videos are any indication, his young son Charlie may be soon following in his footsteps.

Freddie clubbed a 2-run home run to give his Atlanta Braves a 2-0 lead against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas on Tuesday. After the homer, FS1 showed Freeman’s wife Chelsea and son Charlie celebrating.

Then they aired a little piece on the Freemans that highlighted Charlie’s baseball skills. Check out this video shared by Chelsea of her 4-year-old son crushing balls off tees inside what appears to be a hotel ballroom.

The young boy also has a good arm:

Chelsea is currently pregnant with twins, meaning the Freemans will be soon adding some more little sluggers to their team. One day long after Freddie retires, we may be seeing some other Freemans in the majors.
