Nationals are 7-0 when bullpen coach eats banana-mayonnaise sandwich

Tuesday October 7th, 2014

The Nationals are facing elimination against the Giants on Tuesday night; a loss ends their season. So they're going to need all the luck they can get. If you ask bullpen coach Matt LeCroy, the secret to the team's success is a really gross sandwich.

According to The Washington Post, LeCroy eats the sandwich as a sort of superstition before big games. He's not even the only guy in sports to eat them; Dale Earnhardt Jr. is apparently a fan.

The folks at the Post were actually brave enough to try it. We'll pass on this one, thanks.
