Matt LeCroy eats superstitious banana and mayonnaise sandwich

When the team needs a win or injuries arise Washington Nationals bullpen coach Matt LeCroy beings to eat.

LeCroy enjoys a banana and mayonnaise sandwhich on white bread whenever the team needs him.

“A lot of people were hurting in the beginning, and we needed some big wins so I thought, ‘I gotta go with the banana-and-mayonnaise,’” LeCroy told the Washington Post. The Nationals are 5-0 on days when he eats the sandwich before the game, a fact that the jovial LeCroy is proud of.

LeCroy has no shame over his meal labeling it as “awesome.”

“I always ate ‘em and everybody made fun of them,” LeCroy said. “It’s just kinda my go-to when we needed a win. I just started doing it, and it took off.”
