To control uncertainty,Wade Boggs eats chicken before every game.
Chicago White Sox pitcher Jason Bere listens to the same song on his Walkman on the days he is to pitch. His teammate, Ozzie Guillen, doesn't wash his underclothes after a good game. San Francisco Giant pitcher Ron Bryant added a new stick of bubble gum to the collection in his bulging back pocket after each game he won. Jim Ohms, my teammate and pitcher on the Daytona Beach Islanders, put another penny in the pouch of his supporter after each win. Clanging against the hard plastic genital cup, the pennies made an audible sound as he ran the bases toward the end of a winning season. -- by George Gmelch @ Faulkner University
