INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Kontos On Sticky Substances -“Better Grip” vs “Distinct Advantage”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast 

Updated once a week and celebrating its 12th season on!

On this week’s Inside China Basin San Francisco Giants podcast former SF reliever George Kontos is back to talk about the Giants reversing course offensively, going from barely scoring in DC to bombs away vs. Arizona. We discuss Brandon Crawford’s All Star case and dive deep into MLB’s crackdown on pitchers using foreign substances on baseballs.

Kontos on pitchers using Spider Tack: “Going out of your way to get something that will make (the baseball) significantly stickier is where we have the problem.. I think it’s good for baseball to not use blatant cheating substances.”
