It’s from the bible and has to do with Samson and Delilah, which is in the bible character, Samson strength came from his hair.
His long hair gave him an unnatural strength.
And it was able to defeat many soldiers and army by himself and a jawbone of an ass.
And he was able to defeat them.
And but Delilah, a bad woman was able to cut his hair.
And his strength went away.
So in this case, the patch that are wearing on their uniforms or the mark on the baseball bat is giving it power.
So that is why the hitting or playing better.
