Former janitor Evan Gattis uses old ID badge as Twitter avatar

Braves catcher Evan Gattis has a remarkable story. The college dropout-turned-wanderer-turned-Major Leaguer saw his stock rise during a magical Spring Training that ultimately led to his first hit in The Show: a home run.

One particular chapter in Gattis' story involved him working as a janitor during a stint in Dallas -- a job he and his brother stumbled upon on Craigslist.

ESPN's Buster Olney found Gattis' Twitter account and pointed out a little joke related to that gig:

Gattis' avatar is his janitor's ID badge.

For a janitor, the picture's really not half bad. If the guy can keep mashing, Braves fans will probably start making knockoffs of that thing and showing up to Turner Field dressed like this.
