Card of the Day: 12/10/15

2000 Upper Deck MVP #56 Fernando Tatis

     In 1999, Fernando had his best season for the Cardinals and for his career. It was the season he became the only Major League player to hit two grand slams in one inning. During 1999, Tatis posted a .298 batting average while belting 34 home runs, knocking in 107 runs, and scoring 104 runs. Overshadowed by the contributions of Mark McGwire (finished 5th in MVP voting), Fernando didn't even crack the Top 30 in NL MVP voting while players with worse numbers (Jeff Kent, Barry Larkin) finished with more votes.
