Pre-game Ritual

Before every RoughRiders game, third baseman Mike Olt has his own way of getting ready for the game right before the starting line-ups are called — handshakes.

He goes around to every player, coach and bat boy and conducts his special pre-game greeting to each one. Some, like his and short stop Jurickson Profar’s are a little more intricate than your traditional fist bump.
