When Overbay stepped up to plate, fans would do the “O chant.” Fans would raise their hands over their heads in an “O” symbol – some brought cardboard cut outs of the letter “O” – and would chant a prolonged “O” sound to honor Overbay. Overbay said of the chant, “The “O” chant doesn’t break my concentration. Sometimes it gets me too pumped up because I want to come through and give the fans something to cheer about, instead of just chanting. But overall, I think it’s cool that I get that treatment from Brewers fans.”
