We're getting baseball back in about a month, but obviously, there will be changes. And one of the proposed changes is getting ridiculed all over social media.
It's called the "Wet Rag Rule", and it states that a pitcher can keep a wet rag in his back pocket as an alternative to constantly licking his fingers when he's on the mound.
Fans and players alike are having a good laugh over it. Former relief pitcherJEFF NELSONsaid, quote, "Good luck hitters, water won't be the only thing on that rag."
A Braves writer named Scott Colemansaid, quote, "Thankfully, baseball doesn't have a cheating problem."
And one guy asked, quote, "Does sweaty fingers touching a ball transmit less germs than a licked finger? I'm not a doctor, but, uh, sounds exactly the same to me."
