“When you believe in things that you don’t understand, then you suffer, Superstition ain’t the way.”
- Stevie Wonder
Sorry, Stevie, but superstition is very much the way in major league baseball. Ballplayers certainly can be described as creatures of habit.
No, not that kind of habit.
(If you’re old like me, you may recall an episode of the television series M*A*S*H , where “Hawkeye” once said to “Klinger”, “warning – dressing like a nun may be habit forming.”)
