Joe Maddon will get a tattoo if Rays reach World Series
Joe Maddon isn’t your typical baseball manager. He thinks differently from many of his managerial compatriots, and he isn’t afraid to try new training methods. He also gets creative when it comes to motivating his players. On Friday, Maddon tweeted that he will get a tattoo if the Rays reach the World Series:
@rroberts19 told me I would have to get a tattoo if we played in the World Series. I’m in.

The Rays are currently 0.5 games behind the Angels for the final wild card spot in the American League. If they reach the playoffs, they’ll have as good of a chance as anyone of making the World Series, and then maybe Maddon can get some sort of old school joker tattoo on his biceps.
