Jake Arrieta getting Coastal Carolina tattoo over College World Series bet
Cubs ace Jake Arrieta will be the proud owner of a Coastal Carolina tattoo after they eliminated TCU from the College World Series.
TCU alum Arrieta made a bet with teammate Tommy La Stella, a Coastal Carolina alum, over the outcome of their College World Series showdown. The loser had to get the winning team’s logo tattooed on them, and Coastal Carolina beat TCU twice to make Arrieta the loser.
“So happy for those kids,” La Stella said Sunday, via ESPN’s Jesse Rogers. “When we get back to Chicago we’ll get him [Arrieta] tatted up for life.”
La Stella said that the tattooing will be recorded on one condition.
“If it’s a body part that’s visually acceptable, absolutely,” La Stella said.
With any luck, Arrieta will get this done quickly and somewhere visible so that he can show it off at the Home Run Derby, which he wants to participate in.
