A tarry situation
We might have a George Brett-type incident in the making going on in the U.S. dugout. Phillies shortstop Jason Donald grabbed the wrap used to apply pine tar to the bats and found it to be a tad, shall we say, overserved. The pine tar was caked on this thing.
“Just a little bit too much,” Donald said with a laugh, showing the wrap to coach Reggie Smith.
Smith replied: “You’re going to get up to the plate and the bat’s going to slip right out of your hand!”
