Many baseball players have rituals or superstitions that they follow during the season.  Some wear the same socks or have certain rituals or patterns that they follow on game day.

I have found that being married to a former baseball player (now coach) that I have become superstitious in what I wear.

For the first scrimmage and game, I wore the exact same outfit and we had good results.  For our second game of the season, I wore a different shirt that a wonderful friend bought me last year.  I was blinged out with the shirt and my jewelry.  We lost.

For the third game, I went back to my original outfit, Coyote shirt and shorts.  The jewelry was the same for both games.  We won that game against our long-time rival.

Going into our first district game, I knew we were going to be hard-pressed to win with several starters out for disciplinary reasons and I didn’t want to “waste” my good luck outfit. I wore the same shirt from the second game.  Sorry, Steph.  H and I took a picture to send to our friend.  We did lose that game.

In the weeks since then I haven’t worn the same outfit twice.  Against Laredo Cigarroa, I wore my black and pink “Go Fight Win” breast cancer shirt.  We won that game.

I can’t remember what I wore against Corpus Christi Ray.  We lost that game, so I think I’ve pushed it out of my head.

For Homecoming, I wore my new white and pink Alice Coyotes shirt. If you click on this link, you will see me at the 3:30 mark. We won that game.

Last week, I was bundled up in Jason’s long-sleeve shirt and my black Coyote Hoodie and we won.

Today I’m back to my original shirt, jeans, boots and jewelry.  We are pulling for a win tonight.

Come baseball season, I will wear the same stuff for every game.  I’m superstitious like that.

How about you? Are you superstitious about anything?

  1. In high school (and maybe even into college) I had a good luck necklace for test days. I still have it in my jewelry box but it’s a choker-style and doesn’t fit comfortably anymore.
