Phillies Prospect Mickey Moniak has name tattooed on friend’s butt
Give Ethan Abram’s credit, he is a man of his word, and pays off his debts.
The Backstory :
As a high school freshman, Mickey Moniak made a bet with his friend, Ethan, that if Moniak was selected within the first 10 picks of the draft, Abrams would get his signature tattooed on his butt.
From Abrams perspective : As great as Moniak was at the time, what are the odds that an outfielder from La Costa Canyon High School in San Diego, California would be a top 1o selection in the MLB draft ? Go ahead and the make the bet, it’ll be a fun talking / laughing topic that will never be paid off.
Flash forward to 2016, and the Phillies made Moniak the number one overall pick in the MLB draft, and Abrams had a bet to pay off, and yes, it will forever become a fun, laughing topic.
For Moniak’s first season in the Phillies organization, playing in the Gulf Coast League, he hit .284, .409 slugging with a .749 OPS. Moniak had 11 doubles, 4 triples, and 1 HR with 10 stolen bases ( 4 caught stealing) in 176 at bats.
