It’s more sticky after washing it with alcohol Scherzer deserved to be upset
Was Max Scherzer (39, New York Mets), who was disciplined after being sent off for using foreign substances during a recent game, unfair?
David Cohn, who is in charge of commentary on ESPN, a U.S. sports channel, tested how sticky his hands could be under the same conditions as Scherzer on the 24th (Korea Standard Time).
First of all, Cohn touched Rosin with the Major League logo with his hand and wiped it with alcohol. This is the same condition as Scherzer.
If you look at the video, you can see that the fingers of the cone, which is a little sticky with rosin, are washed away with alcohol and then become much more sticky.
At that time, Scherzer washed his hands with alcohol in front of several people, including Major League Baseball officials, after being pointed out by the referee in the second inning that his hands were sticky.
Afterwards, Scherzer was ordered to replace his glove by the referee in the third inning, and was ordered to leave the game in the fourth inning, pointing out that his hand was more sticky.
At the time, Scherzer strongly protested against the sticky substance, saying it was only rosin. But Scherzer’s protest was not accepted 스포츠토토
Eventually, Scherzer was sent off for the match and was suspended for 10 games. Scherzer gave up his appeal and was suspended for 10 games.
Scherzer’s innocence and the referee’s error can’t be confirmed just by this ESPN video. But at least I’ve confirmed that alcohol makes your fingers more sticky.
Therefore, it is highly likely that the reason why Scherzer’s fingers became more sticky than before the referee’s point was the alcohol used as instructed by the referee
