When the Philadelphia Phillies drafted high school outfielder Mickey Moniak, two levels of joy overcame him. The first was finally fulfilling his dream of being a professional baseball player. His second, well let’s just say is a bit more unusual.
Moniak and his long-time friend Ethan Abrams played baseball together throughout their lives. As they grew older, and the prospects of playing professional baseball became real, the two levied a wager.
If Moniak was drafted within the top-10 picks a major league team would have the honor of having his signature permanently tattooed on the others backside.
