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?
