Driving home from work today, I had Sirus XM on listening to the Braves-Pirates game. The Pirates announcers referenced a play from a Braves game earlier in the week where Kurt Suzuki blocked a pitch in the dirt and the ball stuck to his chest protector "like velcro" raising some questions as to whether Suzuki had something sticky on his chest protector. Suzuki denied this in post-game comments and said he had no idea why a baseball would do that. My conspiracy theorist nature suspects Suzuki may have been assisting a Braves pitcher (Bartolo Colon?) by warehousing some tactical substance to discreetly apply to baseballs. Conspiracy theory number 2 would be that applying stick-um to a chest protector may help limit caroms off it when blocking balls in the dirt.
Has anyone else heard more of this story?
