Looks like the japs solved the tacky substance problem.
oh, can't call them japs anymore. sorry about that. keep forgetting.
is it still ok to call the yankees yanks? probably. not sure.
anyways. they decided to spray each ball with a tacky substance so that pitchers can't bitch (like most pitchers do about just about everything) ( my experience anyways). so that the pitchers can't bitch that they need spider tack so they don't lose grip on the ball and hit someone in the head.
my guess is this will put out the fire. umps won't look down players jocks anymore, pitchers will go back to using spider tack, and will find something else to bitch about. sc
