Crazy Superstitions Continue for the Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins seem to have found a new lucky charm in the form of a bagged summer sausage. This unusual superstition has now gone international, as the sausage made its way across the Canadian border for Friday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays. It all started when hitting coach David Popkins introduced the sausage ritual to the team, encouraging players to tap the unopened summer sausage before their at-bats.

The mystery surrounding the sausage’s journey into Canada remains unsolved. Despite questions about how the well-traveled piece of meat managed to cross the border, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli refused to disclose any details. This bizarre superstition has been with the team through thick and thin, accompanying them on road trips and sticking around even after their winning streak ended. Baldelli may not be in charge of the sausage, but it has definitely become a part of the team’s routine.

The Minnesota Twins have been on fire lately, winning 15 of their last 17 games and taking their past five series. Currently sitting just 1 1/2 games behind first-place Cleveland in the AL Central, the Twins are showing no signs of slowing down. While the sausage superstition may seem outlandish, it’s not the first time the Twins have embraced unconventional rituals. Last season, they celebrated home runs with a fishing vest and toy fishing pole, paying homage to the state’s abundance of lakes.

Whether the lucky sausage truly holds any power or is simply a quirky tradition, one thing is for sure – the Minnesota Twins are having fun with it. As they continue their winning ways and cement their position as a strong contender in the AL Central, the sausage superstition remains a fascinating aspect of their journey. Only time will tell if the sausage will continue to bring luck to the team, but for now, it’s just another part of the Twins’ unique and entertaining baseball experience.
