Baseball Is Being Dragged for Its New "Wet Rag Rule"

We're getting baseball back in about a month, but obviously, there will be changes. And one of the proposed changes is getting ridiculed all over social media.

It's called the "Wet Rag Rule", and it states that a pitcher can keep a wet rag in his back pocket as an alternative to constantly licking his fingers when he's on the mound.

Fans and players alike are having a good laugh over it. Former relief pitcherJEFF NELSONsaid, quote, "Good luck hitters, water won't be the only thing on that rag."

A Braves writer named Scott Colemansaid, quote, "Thankfully, baseball doesn't have a cheating problem."

And one guy asked, quote, "Does sweaty fingers touching a ball transmit less germs than a licked finger? I'm not a doctor, but, uh, sounds exactly the same to me."
