All of baseball could be fairly said to have been unlucky in 1994, but the Giants suffered a more particular harm. With Williams on pace for 62 home runs and Bonds not far behind him with a 54-home-run pace, Giants fans looked forward to a season unlike any since the 1961 Yankees saw Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris compete to chase Babe Ruth ’s record.

Unfortunately, both of these statistics are misleading when it comes to determining the true value of a player. That’s because they miss some of the key components of the game, namely luck. When a pitcher throws a ball, or a batter hits a ball, they no longer have control of the action.

Luck in baseball? If a player isn’t performing well, that’s because he’s in a slump. They’re pressing too hard or they need to fix their mechanics…or something like that. Luck doesn’t have any play...

It is categorized as a “luck stat” with the goal of bringing to light essentially the placement of hits. BABIP can be calculated for both hitters and pitchers. It should be noted that hitters have greater direct control over their BABIP than pitchers. The three key factors that influence BABIP are defense, talent level and, well, luck.

A wad of gum stuck to your hat is supposedly good luck. Not washing any of your gear or apparel (even your underwear) will keep a winning streak going. This one might only be unhygienic if nature calls, but it's also bad luck if a dog walks across the baseball diamond before the first pitch. Then there are superstitions maintained by specific players.

The rationale here is that, the deeper a pitcher goes with a no-hitter intact, the more the opponent must “earn” that first hit. If a player bunts for a hit in the first inning, nobody bats an eyelash. But if that hitter waits until the ninth inning of a no-hitter to do it, it’s a baseball felony. •

In fact anything that happens prior to something good or bad in baseball can give birth to a new superstition. Some of the more common superstitions include purposely stepping on or avoiding stepping on the foul line when taking the field, and not talking about a no-hitter or perfect game while it is in progress — a superstition that also holds for fans and announcers.

There are common superstitions practiced in baseball by players during a baseball game that are thought to bring luck, or that must be done to avoid losing the game. Never step on the chalk lines coming on or off the field. Never talk about a no-hitter or perfect game when a game is in progress. Players eat a specific meal before a game.

For years baseball could treat pace of action as a back burner issue because of a cozy security blanket: attendance was rock steady. Today that security blanket is gone.

NO LUCK AT ALL: The odds of winning the U.K. national lottery are 1 in 45 million—if you buy one ticket. But you could take luck out of the equation if you bought tickets for every possible combination. Success is a matter of increasing the chance something will happen. Loop Images/UIG via Getty Images

1. May 1, 1920: Brooklyn Robins 1, Boston Braves 1. Length: 26 innings. The longest game by innings in Major League history could have gone even longer -- after 26 innings, the game was called due to darkness.
