Pine Tar Newsbeat

Thursday, May 09, 2019

Yusei Kikuchi apparently used pine tar on brim of hat

A minor controversy brewed during Wednesday night’s game in the Bronx between the Mariners and Yankees. Mariners starter Yusei Kikuchi apparently was using pine tar he had slathered on the underside of the brim of his hat. The YES Network broadcast showed this close-up in the eighth inning

Kikuchi pitched well, bringing a no-hit bid into the sixth inning. He held the Yankees to a lone run on three hits and a walk with three strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings.

Nice to see that, with all the arguments present involving the sport, that some old stand-bys last.
