Baseball is great (and if it’s not, I’m sure the commenters will let me know), but there’s a ton of downtime. It’s easy to see why the players get bored sometimes, and even easier to appreciate the myriad ways they amuse themselves. Either the University of Missouri’s baseball team was very bored, or they have a good luck charm.
Tigers relief pitcher Nolan Gromacki’s hair does have an especially fiery hue, and his teammates got a little creative with it. As a good luck charm, it didn’t work — Missouri lost that game — but it passed the time.
