Success is often associated with luck and even people who are very talented seem to believe in fads based on some superstitious belief. We can often spot the baseball players wearing strange looking rope necklaces around their neck. This fashion trend has been sported by baseball players for over 10 years now. The reason why wearing rope necklaces have been such a famous fad is because many very famous and respected baseball players have worn this type of necklaces in important matches. Even in the biggest baseball sporting events like the World Series players have worn the rope necklace.
The fact is that the rope necklace is not one of the fleeting fashion statements that gains popularity among players. Baseball players definitely like to look stylish but they wear the rope necklaces because they believe it would bring them good luck. Some consider this as another fashion fad which is being advertised and publicized by the baseball players by the makers. This theory has some truth in it because even successful Major League Baseball players have been spotted wearing the rope necklaces.
