Baseball players and managers are some of the most superstitious athletes in all of sports. If a player or a team gets on a hot streak, then baseball players are willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that it continues.
Some players had routines that they needed to follow before every single game or every start or else they just would not feel right.
The superstitions followed by some MLB players are certainly things that many people would consider to be weird. However, no one is going to say anything if it helps a hitter keep his hitting streak alive.
