Outfielder Greg Halman is in camp early, working on his swing and sporting a new tattoo - a baseball that looks like a globe, with the words 'My World' nearby.
It's the newest of 14 tattoos on Halman, something he admits his mother has trouble with.
"It's 2010, a good tatoo is like wearing a new shirt," Halman said. "I promised her I'd take it easy and not get another one too soon.
"People say when I get older, I'll look bad. When I'm 60, women won't be interested in me, anyway."
Never miss a local story.
Halman is 22, and a power hitter for a team that doesn't have many in the system. A year ago, he hit 25 home runs in Class AA - but struck out 183 times in 457 at- bats.
He's been in Arizona for weeks, working on making more contact, swinging so much he's had to bandage a growing callous on one hand.
"I'm learning, not going after every pitch so aggressively," he said. "I'm staying under control more, now all I have to do is maintain it, not try to impress someone with every swing."
