Pine Tar, Advantage for Pitchers? or needed for safety?

Recommended Posts

MLB's Stars Debate Pitchers Using Pine Tar

Ah, but pitchers using pine tar, rosin, sunscreen, good old-fashioned sweat and anything else available to help them grip the baseball and, possibly, to help make it move?

Now that's been happening since the game was invented.

So the important takeaway of this Bauer-Astros dustup isn't the forum in which it was argued; it's that it again has sparked a serious conversation on the subject.

"I use pine tar on my bat so the bat doesn't slip out of my hands," Baltimore outfielder Adam Jones says. "So a pitcher can use pine tar on the ball so it doesn't hit me in the face."
