[4/14/2016] Orix coaching staff wears white jeans for luck

According to a report at Daily Sports, outfield/base coach Manabu Satake suggested to the coaching staff wear white pants after the team lost its fifth straight game on April 12. The following day, all but two members of the coaching staff showed up to the stadium wearing white jeans and the losing streak ended.

The two members of the staff that did not show up wearing white jeans: manager Junichi Fukura showed up in his regular pants because he does not believe in doing anything for luck and head coach Norifumi Nishimura had to rush out and buy a pair of white jeans for the game on April 14 because he did not think the others were being serious.
