Do's and Don'ts

Do’s and Don’ts

Here are some Do’s and Don’ts for you future all stars…
 Never step on the baseline.
 Don’t go sniffing the rosin bag… you don’t know where its been.
 Keep saying… I know I can, I know I can, I know I can.
 Don’t keep saying… I ‘m a dead man, I ‘m a dead man
 Never sit next to a third baseman.
 The seventh inning stretch is NOT one of the legal pitching positions.
 Never bring up the fact that you might be dating the daughter
of the third base umpire.
 Never talk about the progress of your perfect game… especially
after the first inning!
 Wrap your pitching arm in a towel after every inning pitched,
just make sure your wrap it the same way., left to right or right
to left…… but never back and forth or up and down.
 Look at the ground… then look at the sky ….and be confident
that the ball’s going to go one way or the other.
 In between innings, rub your glove twice counter clockwise …
just don’t hold it belt high when your sitting in the dugout, you’ll
be alone for a long time.
 Don’t take the mound… trip on the rubber and say out loud …
“who the heck left this here!!”
 All that writing on the baseball are not instructions… just throw
the darn thing !

Best wishes to you all…. Coach B.

Am I missing something?

i dont get it either :?

Sorry about that … I’m only about 30 years behind the times…ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ……

Some pitchers have a superstition about being next to a 3rd baseman in the dugout… not all, just some.

Usually when a pitcher looks over to third base… it means the other club now has a runner in scoring position,…AND… when there’s a need for a pitcher to get over to THAT part of the world it’s usually to BACKUP something that’s not going very well.…

In either case… third base is just ninety feet away from dumping your ERA in the proverbial @#%!!..

So… the less you see of that guy and his part of the park… the better off you are. Nothing personal mind you…

But then again, some guys aren’t superstitious.
