Oakland athletes are ‘very superstitious’--Oakland Post
Some of the student athletes are specific with the order in which they put on their gear. Trent Drumheller of the baseball team claims he always puts his left batting glove on before his right and his right cleat on before his left.

From the basketball team, Corey Petros is guilty of a similar superstition. He says he must put his right sock on before his left.
Pregame Rituals
Dante Williams, a senior on the basketball team, said he and a couple of the other players from the team sit in the chairs lined up along the side line after shoot around and they don’t leave until they make a shot.
