UCLA Baseball: Adam Plutko’s Hat Is Really Gross

Baseball is full of superstitions, and UCLA baseball players aren’t about to break that trend.

We’ve already seen TCU draw a turtle in the dirt and feed it stupid things like Skittles and whatever else they fed that turtle. Apparently, though, UCLA pitcher Adam Plutko has his own superstition: His hat.

It’s disgusting. Like, really disgusting. Check it:

DEAR LORD, ADAM PLUTKO, SOMEONE VOMITED ON YOUR HAT A FEW YEARS AGO. CHANGE IT.

Really, that’s disgusting as hell, and how he wears it is beyond me. The superstition here must be that Plutko won’t wash or change hats until UCLA wins an NCAA tournament in the College World Series. Or maybe it’s that someone must urinate on his baseball cap before every game, and he has to let it dry out in the sun.

I don’t know what the deal is, but looking at it makes me want to vomit, both on the hat and in general.

It must be working pretty damn well, though. UCLA, at the time of this writing, is murdering Stony Brook, 8-1. So much for Cinderella, and so much for this being a pseudo-home game, because although the stadium of 20,000 is predominantly pro-Stony Brook, the Bruins are making sure they stay quiet.

That’s just how we roll, dawg.

GO BRUINS!!
