San Diego Padres’ shortstop Fernando Tatís Jr. has hit 21 home runs so far this year, but his 21st was particularly impressive. That came on the road Wednesday against Kyle Freeland of the Colorado Rockies:

This is just one of many moonshots Tatis has hit this year, as MLB’s Sarah Langs relays:
That's Fernando Tatis Jr.'s 7th home run this season of at least 440 ft, most in @MLB
And it went 477!!

On the season, Tatis is hitting .275/.347/.661, and he’s been a big part of the Padres’ 38-31 record to date. We’ll see where he goes from here.
