Outfielder Gerardo Parra became one of the biggest viral sensations in the MLB last season, largely due to his interesting choice of walk-up music.
The 32 year-old journeyman outfielder -- who now will be playing professionally in Japan -- made a great impression on baseball fans, proudly approaching the batters box to the tune of 'Baby Shark'. Now, Parra is honoring his run of internet relevance, by getting inked with a tattoo honoring the Nationals' World Series victory and of course, Baby Shark.
While the utility outfielder served as little more than a shiny glove for the team during their improbable postseason run (and he owns two Gold Gloves to prove it), Parra's impact in the clubhouse for teammates and as a fan favorite led to his was important to the team's success.
While Parra's music choice was questionable, to say the least, this sweet tattoo will forever remind him of the year that he helped the Nationals chomp their way to a World Series victory. It's clear that even with Parra in Japan, he will be relied upon to cheer on his former teammates this upcoming season.
Parra's latest ink is perfectly on-brand for the veteran outfielder, who was one of the most endearing characters of the 2019 MLB postseason. Let's hope he keeps the 'Baby Shark' phenomenon going strong overseas.
