MLB – 1983 – Unofficial Baseball Handbook Special – Do Not Step On That Line – Baseball Superstitions

Superstition is a pejorative term for any belief or practice that is considered irrational or supernatural….for example, if it arises from ignorance, a misunderstanding of science or causality, a positive belief in fate or magic, or fear of that which is unknown. It is commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy, and certain spiritual beings, particularly the belief that future events can be foretold by specific (apparently) unrelated prior events…..which makes superstitions a “perfect breeding ground in the game of baseball”

This page in the Unofficial Baseball Handbook dedicated to superstitions in the game….as depicted in this video herewith…..provides ample proof that the game of baseball lends itself to the attachment by players to many various forms and types of superstitions that are adhered to by many players in many different situations….which in our mind here at ImaSportsphile….makes this video MUST SEE TV!!!!
