Fernando Tatis Has Taken to Taunting Chan Ho Park

On April 23, 1999, then-St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Fernando Tatis smacked a record two, count 'em, two grand slams off Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Chan Ho Park in the same inning.

Now, fourteen years later, Tatis has taken to Twitter to smack talk the Korean hurler.

Now, I don't want to be this guy…but I will.  Sure, on that day, Tatis might've got the better of Park.  It's true.  But, overall, I've gotta go with the Korean sensation.

As far as "where are they now?"…Park recently called it quits after a pretty storied career.  During his 17 years in the Majors, the righty compiled a 124-98 record (the most wins among Asian born pitchers) and a 4.36 ERA. From 1997 to 2001, Park rattled off five consecutive years with more than 13 victories for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

On the flip side of the coin, Tatis has 2289 Twitter followers.  Oh, and those two grand slams.
