VIDEO: Cardinals Pitcher Throws Strike Out, But Where’s the Ball?

It’s not often that you come across the term “foreign substance” in baseball. Yet every now and again, pitchers find themselves in hot water for having a foreign substance on their fingers, their pants, only to smear the ball with it and create some extra English.


Reliever Brett Cecil received quite a few puzzled expressions today after a strike out turned into a single on a mysterious missing ball. The most puzzled face out there? Cards catcher Yadier Molina.

Most likely the substance was some pine tar on Molina’s chest protector, but whenever you see a ball that sticky…it makes you think.

Either way, it made for one hell of a highlight.

Cards lost the baseball and the ball game to the Cubbies, 4-2.
