Pablo Sandoval Talks to His Bat, Hits Two Home Runs (Video)
It is easy to poke fun at athletes for their strange superstitions — especially baseball players. When rumors about a high school team prompts this type of investigation you can’t help but laugh. When an All-Star second basemen does this in an attempt to break out of a slump or Aubrey Huff chooses to wear these underwear, they become easy targets of ridicule. But if it works, what can you say? Pablo Sandoval channeled his inner Pedro Cerrano Monday night and it paid off in a huge way after he belted two home runs. Check out the video of Pablo Sandoval talking to his bat:
Whatever serious conversation he was having with his lumber must have worked. The question is does he talk to the bat all the time and just happened to hit two homers in this game, or did he hit two homers after deciding to give his wand a lecture. Either way, that is pretty impressive.
