Cincinnati Reds pitcher Wade Miley talked after his first career no-hitter about a temporary Incredible Hulk tattoo that his four-year-old son, Jeb, gave him on his forearm before he left for Cleveland.
Teammate Nick Castellanos told reporters he believes Miley has no choice but to make that tattoo permanent given Miley's historic result in Cleveland on Friday night.
"Well now he's got to get it for real - you know. Obviously," Castellanos said. "That's the easy answer is you got a fake one, you threw a no-no. Now you make it for real."
"I don't know. I'm so scared of needles right now, I don't even want to think about this tattoo," Miley said. "I'm gonna try to get my wife to order as many Hulk tattoos as she can. Maybe I'll just slap on them before every start - let (Jeb) do it. He actually put this on and everything. He had to have it right here. I put it on my shoulder so I could hide it. He had to have it on my forearm. And that's what we went with. He loves the Avengers and stuff like that so I'm rocking it. ... I've got no muscles at all. I'm shriveled up. But maybe this gave me some strength, I don't know. It was fun."
