Mouton the Monkey gives Tiger baseball good luck

LSU

POSTED: Tuesday, April 17, 2012 - 10:15pm

UPDATED: Thursday, May 3, 2012 - 9:36pm

After dropping back to back games to open SEC play the LSU Tiger baseball team made a quick addition to their roster that players say has played a big part of their current win streak.

“I’m just noticing that our team is really coming together. We are making sure that we are doing all the little things right,” pitcher Kurt McCune said of the recent success.

A recent tear has the LSU baseball team atop the SEC standings and number one in the nation.

The Tigers are clicking on all cylinders now, but that wasn't the case before a rally monkey named Mouton joined the team.

"I’m checking out my ice cream and I look over I see he (Kevin Berry) has a purple and gold monkey. He said I think I’m going to buy this for the team. I said yes let’s get a little rally monkey going. He’s been working ever since, 13-1,” pitcher Joey Bourgeois said

“He was raised by a not so good group of monkeys and we decided to take him in and show him the ways of baseball. He has really picked up on the game pretty quickly,” McCune said.

It’s no secret baseball players are superstitious and when something works, they don't change it.

"I don't think it is a coincidence that we have been playing pretty good with him. We are 13-1 with him. If we start to lose, we will have to discipline him a little bit. But right now he is doing pretty well," Kevin Berry, owner of Mouton, said.

"Whatever we do, he does. When we have an off day and we work out on the field he comes. We feed him bananas before and after every game. He is part of the team,” Bourgeious said. 

As this superstition goes, Mouton wasn't made available to the media in fear of the fame getting to his head, and his good charm going away.
