Fernando Tatis Jr. has flipped the baseball world on its head.

The young San Diego Padres shortstop had himself a night for the ages Monday by smashing two home runs, including a grand slam, and driving in seven runs in the Padres’ 14-4 win over the Texas Rangers.

Tatis’ grand slam has divided the baseball community as he hit it with a 3-0 count and seven-run lead, leading some to say he broke an unwritten rule, while others praised the young star for a finishing off a great at-bat with a monster shot.

NESN’s Tom Caron, Steve Lyons and Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer Tim Wakefield gave their takes on the long ball on Tuesday night’s “Red Sox Gameday Live.”
