Justin Miller TattoosI just ran across a very interesting sports and tattoo related news. Back in 2004, Major League Baseball established a rule named after this particular pitcher – Justin Miller – that forced him to wear long sleeves whenever he played.  Doesn’t matter if their playing in Phoenix in 100 degree heat.  The reason – the batters were complaining of distraction from the guys sleeves ink.

This Giants player has a great attitude regarding this rule.  Instead of complaining, he said he’s adjusted to wearing the sleeves in the heat and feels flattered that he has an MLB rule named after him.

This fan of the needle convinced his Dad to take him to a professinal tattoo parlor to get his first tattoo.  His father could see that there was a potential for him to seek work in the wrong places. he was 16 at the time.  Not only are his arms adorned, his chest, back, and even his hand and fingers have tattoo work. His head and neck are the next body parts on his list for tattoo work.

Josh Hamilton doesn’t have to wear any sleeves but I guess he doesn’t have to pitch.
