Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos showed up to spring training with a new tattoo celebrating his rescue from a kidnapping last November. Ramos was playing baseball in his native Venezuela when he was kidnapped and held hostage for two days before being rescued.
According to The Washington Post, “The tattoo, etched last week, contains a Bible verse in Spanish, Philippians 4:13, that Ramos translated as, ‘I put everything in Jesus, because he has my back.’ Emblazoned under the words is 11-11-11.”
11-11-11 was the day he was rescued. The tattoo isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing or well done, but we appreciate the message and sentiment. Hopefully Jesus can guide Ramos to a 20-homer season to help my fantasy team.
