Starlin Castro Is a Superstitious Guy

Baseball Is Fun

Although we all like to pretend that we understand the depth and sincerity of certain professional athletes’ superstitions, I’m not sure I truly understand how serious some players take them. Take Starlin Castro, for example.

The Marlins’ second baseman only exits out of one dugout opening/doorway if he’s doing well, but switches it up if he has a bad at-bat. And that process apparently goes on and on until he finds a rhythm.

Castro was on the Cubs – my favorite team – for years and I never noticed this particular choice, but he sure seems serious about it. I wonder if it works for him. And now I wonder what other little quirks pro athletes are hiding in plain sight.

Like Jordan’s lucky shorts.
