2 High School Baseball Players Kicked Off Team For Allegedly Sacrificing Chickens


According to the AP, two high school baseball players have been kicked off of their team for allegedly sacrificing chickens in order to perform better on the field. I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to.

Police in Benbrook, Texas were quoted as saying that a 15 and 16-year-old “engaged in acts that caused the death of two baby chickens. It appears that superstition relating to a slump in baseball performance could have played a part.”

Western Hills High School baseball coach Bobby McIntire says he has not had a chance to talk to the students about why they did it. He told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that “baseball is very superstitious” and the idea possibly came from movies they say.
