Scott Pleasant recently teamed up again with Joe Oestreich to write an article for the April/May issue of South Caroilna’s Grand Strand Magazine. The article focuses on Coastal Carolina University’s recent College World Series championship and the various superstitions and rituals of the team members and the team’s devoted fans.
Joe and Scott interviewed players, coaches, and fans to get details on the odd and surprising superstitions that helped the team pull off one of the most surprising and exciting championship runs in the history of NCAA sports. The most well-known ritual for the 2016 Chanticleer baseball team was their adoption of a stuff monkey they named Rafiki. The monkey accompanied the team during the last ten games of the 2016 regular season and throughout the post-season. But Joe and Scott discovered that Rafiki was just the beginning.
