Lester Accused Of Cheating

Updated: Thursday, October 24 2013, 07:11 PM EDT

Game 1 of the 2013 World Series was riddled with controversy. From the overturn of an out at second to the "green goo" on Red Sox pitcher's Jon Lester's glove.


Cardinals minor league prospect, Tyler Melling, tweeted a picture of the mysterious substance accusing Lester of using Vaseline to help his grip.


Any foreign substance on a pitcher's glove is illegal according to MLB rules. Rule 1.15 of the MLB rulebook states: "No pitcher shall attach to his glove any foreign material of a color different from the glove."


Lester admits the video looks bad but says that it is rosin, which is a legal substance. Major League Baseball released a statement downplaying the incident, "We cannot draw any conclusions from this video. There were no complaints from the Cardinals and the umpires never detected anything indicating a foreign substance throughout the game." Melling has since deleted his tweet.
