Jake Arrieta gets Coastal Carolina tattoo after losing CWS bet

Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta is a man of his word.

Arrieta, a proud TCU alum, made a bet with teammate Tommy La Stella, who went to Coastal Carolina, when their alma maters faced off in the semifinal of the College World Series back in June.

The loser would have to get a tattoo of the winner’s school.

With the Chanticleers going on to victory and eventually claiming the national championship, Arrieta had to pay up.

On Friday, Arrieta shared a photo on social media to prove he did not back down from his bet. He even added a nice championship touch.

The good news for Arrieta is that it appears to be a small tattoo.

Even better? The Cubs won the World Series, so don’t feel too bad for the Chicago ace.
