Fans Padres dugout

Fernando Tatis Jr. and his teammates acted quickly Saturday night to try to protect fans following a shooting that took place outside Nationals Park. On Sunday, he explained what went through his mind as he acted the way he did.

Reports emerged following the incident that in the moments following the shooting, Tatis and Manny Machado were among those directing fans into the dugout to seek safety after shots were heard nearby. Tatis said Sunday that he was protecting family, particularly young children that he saw in the vicinity.

Tatis wouldn’t have known what kind of danger he or anyone else was in at the time. His quick thinking, and that of his teammates, should be commended.

Three people were wounded in the shooting that took place outside near one of the stadium’s gates. Police said none of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening. The game was suspended after the shooting took place, and is set to be completed Sunday.
