Fernando Tatis Jr.’s $340 million contract is shared with a firm that invested in him when he was a teenager

When Fernando Tatis Jr. signed a massive 14-year, $340 million contract in 2021 with the San Diego Padres, it was the third biggest contract in baseball history. When Tatis, now 23, was a teenager playing single-A minor-league baseball, he signed a contract with Big League Advance, a firm that invests in young athletes. According to Big League Advance, the firm splashed out $26 million among 77 minor-league baseball players in 2017, including Tatis.
