Strange way to break a slump…

What the hell?

After having a line drive turned into a double play and watching Ichiro Suzuki jump over the right-field fence to take away a home run Monday, Mark Kotsay and his White Sox teammates went a non-traditional direction Tuesday to bring the left-handed hitter some luck on offense.

They set up a fire pit during batting practice and burned his bats, in a salute to Pedro Cerrano from the movie “Major League.” According to Kotsay, the ritual was executed by Mark Teahen.

“I walked out and saw what was going on, and obviously I wanted to find out what was going on, but I had nothing to do with it,” Kotsay said. “There are quirky things like changing your uniform or your undershirt or your shoes, but never burning bats.”
