Controversy! Giant’s pitcher is found with a foreign substance in the middle of the game

A not so new controversy has been present in the baseball of the MLB well this saturday august 21 Kevin Gausman, pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, was found with an improper substance during his campaign against the Oakland Athletics. The umpire of the match noticed this situation although he did not have the reaction that would have been expected.

MLB umpires are doing their job to prevent team pitchers from using substance abuse to improve their pitching during games.

And in Saturday’s game between the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics, home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi noticed that Giants pitcher Kevin Gausman had something strange about his arm.

This prompted the official to ask the pitcher to wipe his arm before the start of the bottom of the second inning of the match, as pitchers are not allowed to have resin on their uniforms or bodies.

The story did not go beyond what was mentioned and at the moment it seems that there will be no sanction or suspension for Kevin Gausman by Major League Baseball (MLB), but he will surely be in the crosshairs.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
