It's been called sorcery, superpowers and just plain old superstition. But if any of it helped spur on Sunday night's incredible White Sox Game 3 American League Division Series victory over the Houston Astros, Sox fans will take it.
Meet "Cane Guy," the man who has been spotted pointing and twirling his walking stick at players from behind the dugout, to allegedly powerful results for Chicago's South Siders.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Cane Guy's name is Rob Holt, 73, who has held White Sox season tickets for more than 30 years.
His apparent wizardry was spotted Sunday when he pointed his stick/cane at a Sox player and told him to hit the ball. It worked and fans sitting around Holt took notice.
