Mockingbird Sings to the Relief Pitcher
By Dave Baldwin
I love the story that goes with this one:
Once a teammate (from Alabama) told the artist that it was bad luck for a ballplayer to hear a mockingbird sing - the inconsistency of the bird's songs was contagious and the player would soon begin to play in the same manner. Later, two other players, one from Louisiana and one from North Carolina, told of similar superstitions. The pitcher in the picture isn't happy to test the validity of this theory.
