Padres slugger Franmil Reyes has an unusually specific Padres-themed tattoo

Padres rookie outfielder Franmil Reyes has displayed some outrageous tater-making capabilities thus far in his big league career. Check out this cannon blast from a few weeks ago.

But perhaps the only thing secondary to Reyes' mammoth power is the man's dedication to being a San Diego Padre. What exactly do I mean by that?
On Monday night Reyes -- whose nickname is La Mole -- posted a photo of himself to his Instagram story revealing what appears to be a Padres themed tattoo.


Not only does Reyes have the Padres logo inked on his chest, he's got the Petco Park logo and stadium outline tatted as well. See those three numbers at the bottom of the diamond? That says "05-14-18" or May 14th, 2018 -- the day Franmil made his big league debut.
One can only wonder what tattoo Reyes might have gotten had he made his debut on the road instead of at Petco Park ...
