Superstition

Discussion created by brownie916 on Apr 11, 2013


I just attended my son's little league baseball game and caught a foul ball that was hit back over the back stop.  The foul ball was from one of my son's teammates at bat.  There were two outs, full count, and yes, you guessed it, the bases were loaded.  It was not a close game, at that point.  We were losing.  I was so tempted to drop the ball, because I didn't want the supersititon of having the player out, but I couldn't resist.  I caught the foul ball.  Did I doom him?  Will he strike out?  Would this caught foul ball get into the young player's head that he is destined to make the last out?  He hit a grandslam home run on the next pitch, and we won the game.
