San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis has quickly elevated to stardom in the MLB after his superb rookie season. The 21 year old made one Padres fan's evening on Friday during the team's Spring Training Day. The fan, a cancer patient who had undergone chemotherapy, brought a sign in which she requested Tatis sign her head. Being the man of the people he is, the shortstop happily obliged with the unique but wholly heartwarming request.

An incredibly touching moment from the young shortstop between him and one of his biggest admirers. The crowd seated behind her was absolutely loving the heartfelt moment.

The fan's sign read, "All I want for CHEMO is for TATIS to sign my BALD HEAD!"

This is a moment this lady will never forget, and it goes to show the type of impact professional athletes can have on fans. Tatis just continues to prove that he's a special individual.
