Did David Price have substance like pine tar on his hat?


David Price may have had some sort of substance underneath the brim of his hat when he pitched against the Cleveland Indians on Monday. Several photos that have made their way around the sites like Twitter and Reddit appear to show a blotch, though it’s hard to tell if it was simply a smudge or something Price put there.

At first I thought the mark might just be a sticker. However, when you compare the photo below to the one above, it looks like the shape of the substance changed after Price touched it with his left hand.

Price pitched seven innings and allowed eight hits and just one earned run to pick up a win. The lefthander was scrutinized last month after a substance resembling pine tar was seen on his arm during a start, though he later explained that it was “red hot.”
