Miami Marlins pitcher Alex Sanabia can be seen spitting directly onto a baseball immediately following the home run he gave up to Phillies outfielder Dom Brown in last night’s contest down in Florida. You can watch the highlight of Brown’s home run over at MLB.com and very clearly see the spitting happen at about the 15-second mark.
The spitball has been illegal in baseball for almost a century.
The pitcher shall not –
(2) expectorate [spit] on the ball, either hand or his glove;
Yeah, that’s not legal.
The lowly Marlins not only spit on the ball last night but they also spit in the faces of Phillies fans by winning the game 5-1. Ugh.
