However, it’s not just baseball it’s in most areas of life. It is a way for people to feel more certain about themselves, He used 2 red sox pitchers and showed that being a pitcher is hard and the guy that actual let more runs in per game, won more games then the guy with less. This showed that a lot of it is out of out control and players use rituals to calm themselves during a game. Although there is no relationship with a person and there ritual, like if they touch home plate 3 times doesn’t mean they will instantly get a home run, they are still more likely to get stuck out but they are more confident about it. For a lot of players, they would start a certain ritual after a career defining game, If they did something different before that game then from then on they will keep doing in it in hope of recreating that big game.
