Pete Rose Bookie Notebook Proves Hit King Did Bet on Baseball While Playing (Pic)
Jarrod Saltalamacchia Has Chuck Norris on His Bat (Video)
There are all sorts of superstitions that athletes adhere to, with baseball players often regarded as being among the most superstitious. And though I can’t say that’s the reason that Jarrod Saltalamacchia has a picture of Chuck Norris on the end of his bat, it seems to just make sense. I mean, if you want to hit for power, you’re not going to put Seth Rogen up there, are you? Nah. It’s gonna be Chuck Norris.
Here’s the video that shows what I’m talking about. It looks like Walker: Texas Ranger era Chuck gracing the D-Backs catcher’s bat, but that’s just a guess.
And on a full count, Jarrod managed to get a walk. It doesn’t get much more powerful or epic than drawing a walk, does it?
