MLB Pitching Grip
Should foreign substances be allowed to help pitchers grip?
MLB Foreign Substance Rule-Pitching
I believe that pitchers should be allowed to use grip enhancers such as pine tar. I believe this because pitchers are throwing so fast that they actually killed a man in 1920. They didn't wear helmets while batting back then but it proves the point that these fast pitches can cause major damage. With using foreign substances in the MLB they must be approved by MLB before the pitchers use them. This way the could insure that the grip enhancers only help with grip and not speed or making it curve. This would reduce the chances of players taking brutal injuries. This is all why I believe grip enhancers should be allowed if they don't give any other benefits to the pitchers speed or anything like that.
