Overview

Baseball players are superstitious creatures. They know never to step on the baseline or mention that a no-hitter is in progress, and some have been known to wear the same shirt throughout a hitting streak or eat the same meal before every game. Ballplayers tend to be wary of the supernatural forces that may affect their success - whether they really believe in them or not. But what happens when events seem to suggest that something other than harmless superstition is at work? The Baseball Astrologer examines 50 strange, quirky, and often spine-tingling examples of bizarre coincidences and freakish occurrences throughout baseball history, from specters in the stands to ominous predictions. Did Roberto Clemente Jr. predict his father's death? Did a ouija board tell Lou Gehrig of his fate? What's the real story behind Boston's "Curse of the Bambino" - and what will it take to break it? The Baseball Astrologer reveals these and many more chilling baseball tales.
