Superstitions are a huge deal in baseball. For one, I never washed my socks until I lost a game on the mound. The Angels have a rally monkey. Dallas Braden doesn’t want you stepping on his mound. Hank Blalock would down a six pack before every game. The Red Sox would drink beer and eat fried chicken during games. Pedro Cerrano would pray to Jobu.
Everyone and every team has them. A.J. Pierzynski is not immune to this, either. While on FOX’s “Garbage Time” segment with Katie Nolan, he discussed his the concept of the rally beer, as well as the times he’s played hungover.
He’s right. If someone is bringing beer, you can’t let them go to waste. That’s just rude..
