Game day superstitions
Apr 26, 2012
Welcome to Wool E’s World, the official blog of Minor League Baseball’s most famous mascot…ME.
The Bulls get home from their longest road trip of the season on Friday, and since they had a pretty rough time away from the DBAP (I think they missed me) I thought I’d spend my first blog post talking about what I do to ensure the Bulls win at home.
Like many players, I have my own superstitions regarding baseball. Of course, I never touch the foul line when walking on the field and I will NEVER say what a pitcher is doing when he has not allowed a hit.
I ALWAYS wear my lucky hat. I got the hat six years ago and it just became lucky. Out of all of those years, in five of them the Bulls have won the division and one national championship. I don’t how the team would have gotten there without my hat.
I need to make sure that I am well fed before every game. I eat my pregame meal of a delicious sample of infield grass a few hours before game time.
I don’t like to press the team’s luck. When the team is playing well and it looks like they are headed towards victory, I don’t bring the Victory Flag above the bottom step of the dugout, for fear of jinxing the win.
When we do get to the playoffs, if we are in a rally, I don’t move from my spot at the DBAP. Even if a foul ball is coming my way, I won’t move. If the ball hits me it brings the team extra luck.
Lastly, right before game time, as I walk away from my bedroom, I slap the star on my door for good luck.
Baseball is not a game of luck but my I believe my superstitions help more often than not; as a wise man once said, “60% of the time, it works EVERY time.”
