MLB Power Rankings: Roger Clemens and MLB's 10 Most Superstitious Players Ever

It's no secret that out of all athletes, baseball players are the most superstitious.  As an ex-player, I can attest to this.  In the 14 years that I played, I never once spoke about a big game out of fear of jinxing it.  Whenever I came to bat (this was primarily in high school), I took four practice swings: one for my brother, one for my sister and one for each of my parents.

Yet, on the professional level, baseball players seem to take superstition to a whole new level.  Whether it's always eating the same meal before each game, avoiding certain actions on the field or some crazy fashion decision, baseball players take their rituals seriously.  To give an example, former pitcher Roger Clemens (pictured) always used to wipe his sweat on the Babe Ruth monument in center field when he was with the New York Yankees.

That is just one of many Clemens superstitions that will be discussed later, but let's also talk about some of his fellow players.  Here are the Top 10 most superstitious baseball players in MLB history.
