So there you go, folks! A few tales that encompass common superstitions, to guys who ignore them, to stories that you have to read twice because they’re so unbelievable.

So now you must run! Hide! Watch out for black cats and broken mirrors, and be sure to avoid walking under ladders! Do not step on a crack or you’ll break your mama’s back! And watch out for guys in hockey masks wielding machetes (FYI- always be wary of them, not just today).

Tell us, Astros fans: what are your favorite (the strangest) baseball superstitions?
