    If you are talking about the braided rope necklaces, they are called Phiten. They are infused with ions that give baseball players magical powers. Or so the marketing pitch goes. Every kid that played baseball 2 years ago had one. Now they are out of style.

    Thanks I have always seen them and thought that they were some kind of sweat band. Did Dusty wear one?

    My theory is that they ward off vampires, but it is not backed up by scientific study...

    His toothpicks were infused with ions.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    $50 apiece and made of nylon-coated titanium. Have to admit, before today, I thought they were "rope," too.

    Re: Question

    Please be more descriptive with thread titles. I'm going to edit this one, but single-word thread titles with ambiguous interpretations like "question," "did you see that," "wow," or "horrible" don't lend themselves to discussion very well.

    Thanks!

    They will keep selling necklaces "infused with ions" for as long as there are major league dugouts infused with morons.
