Play Ball! But first, eat your chowder.

NY Mets player Daniel Murphy has astonished the sports world -- and himself -- with a history-making performance. Home runs in six consecutive post-season games!

There's a secret to his success. Keep it under your hat, but SOMEONE has been throwing overalls into the big pot of chowder that Mr. Murphy has been eating from before each post-season game. Begorrah, it's a miracle!

After the Mets beat the Cubs, winning the 2015 National League Pennant and a trip to the World Series, Mets manager Terry Collins commented, "Doesn't matter WHO is putting the overalls in Mr. Murphy's chowder. But he or she just better continue to do so, at least least until the end of the World Series."

Collins continued, "Okay, Murphy was named the Most Valuable Player, but where would he be without that chowder?"

Uh, we don't wanna know.

Play ball!
