    Just use Vaseline.It’s almost clear & can be hidden in lots of places on a uni or in the glove.Gaylord Perry would put it on his pants zipper, the one place the umps would never check.

    @stricturesPineda was using pine tar to get a better grip on the ball. Vaseline won’t do that.

    As documented here, Whitey Ford teamed up with his catcher, to “doctor” the baseball. A pitcher can’t really do that stuff without his catcher at least knowing. Since today’s catcher may be tomorrow’s opponent, I’m surprised a pitcher would even try it. If he returns a loaded ball to the pitcher, he’s as guilty as the pitcher; so, why was only Pineda suspended?
