One fan is paying a hefty price for underestimating the many talents of Bartolo Colon.
According to Mets blog The 7 Line, New York native and Mets enthusiast Matt Sassi made a bet with his friend before the season started that if Colon hit a home run, he would get a "commemorative tattoo."
Well, to quote Colon's record-setting baseball card, "The impossible becomes possible."
Colon, 42, became the oldest player in major-league history to notch his first career homer Saturday, when he connected on a James Shields fastball and sent it into the stands at Petco Park, some 365 feet away from home plate.
