In the video on Tatis’ Instagram story you can see Soto, wearing a Washington Capitals jersey, miss the puck completely and then fall to the ice. Tatis and Soto, both considered to be up-and-coming stars in the MLB are both from the Dominican Republic. While the two have never played together, they are frequently compared and debated about as far as who is better by fans.
“She was the one who brought a smile to my face.”
