Of all the major sports, baseball is perhaps the most superstitious. We’ve all heard of the “Curse of the Bambino” and the infamous “Goat Curse” that plagued the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs for decades.
There was the black cat episode in 1969 that led to the collapse of the Chicago Cubs where they inexplicably blew a 9.5 game lead to lose to the New York Mets. These curses and superstitions do not just effect teams, they also impact players.
