A Youtube video has surfaced today which appears to show Mariano Rivera shiftily spitting on the baseball before a pitch. Major League Baseball of course denies the allegations, finding no reason to discipline the New York Yankees closer.
Kids, a spitball is an illegal baseball pitch in which the ball has been altered by the application of saliva, petroleum jelly, or some other foreign substance, according the almighty Wikipedia.
So did he spit on the ball or not? It's hard to say, though the trajectory of the spit certainly seems to be headed directly for the ball.
This video was clearly made by a distraught baseball fan who does not especially care for the Yankees. Sorry buddy, Mariano isn't going anywhere. Enjoy the series!
