Josh Reddick Rubs Teammates' Beards for Good Luck, A's Get Walk-Off Hit

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistAugust 5, 2014

Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick must believe that rubbing his teammates' beards is only weird if it doesn't work. Now that he found out that it does work, he will probably do it whenever his team needs a rally.

Monday's game between the A's and the Tampa Bay Rays went to extra innings, which is when Reddick pulled out a well-timed trick. With the bases loaded and just one out in the bottom of the 10th inning, Reddick played with the beards of Stephen Vogt and Eric Sogard for good luck.

It didn't work right away, as Brandon Moss struck out during that at-bat. However, the next batter ended the game with a walk-off single.

Derek Norris' game-winning hit gave the A's a 3-2 victory.
