that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
Very interesting event in tonight's Red Sox/Yankees game, as Michael Pineda was ejected in the middle of an at-bat for having a "foreign substance" on his neck.
A similar event happened with Pineda in a game between the two teams back in April, but he washed off whatever was on his hand before the umps took a look at him.
Per the ESPN article, the MLB rule is that players caught in this situation face a mandatory 10-game suspension.
I'm trying to remember who the last pitcher was that was caught using pine tar or something on a ball. Wasn't Schilling accused of doing that?
Looks like the old remedy for pitchers isn't really helping (well except to numb soreness momentarily). Thought with so many involved and active in so many people here involved in different sports this knowledge should be widespread.
The baseball team improved their record to 17-20-1 and 7-6 in the big ten with a dramatic 12th inning win in West Lafayette.
The boys now play two mid week games against EMU before returning to BT conference play next week at Purdue.
A crucial win.
