Its not that they put pine tar on their helmets on purpose. Its from handling the bat with their gloves, then both adjusting/taking off their helmet. So it just transfers from bat to helmet via the glove. Sure they could clean their helmets after a game, but I'm sure its a superstitious thing with many baseball players to not clean the helmet. I'm sure you've seen tons of ball players with extremely dirty helmets...
Also... ball players ''adjust'' the amount of pine tar on their gloves for preference by touching their helmet to take some of it off.
The reason why Major League Baseball players touch their helmets is because they use a substance called Pine tar, it's a sticky substance that looks kind of like mud in a way. Players stick it to their helmets so that when they go up to bat they have some to grab to put on their batting gloves because Pine tar is designed to help keep a better grip on a bat.
You want a very light layer on the handle. It is wise to put a more hefty layer either on your helmet or on the top (barrel end) of the handle to use when the pine tar already on the bat wears off. Most pine tar is either in a stick that you rub on like chap stick, or in liquid form on a rag, which you rub on as well.
No. There is only set size for the MLB. You would not be able to get away with a bat of a different size.A player usually has about 5 bats that is specifically 'his'. That is why you see players put their bats back into 'cubbies' when they go back to the bench.They are allowed to add their personal preference of pine tar to the bat, which is why they have their own.
The best way is to spray it on with a spray jar. Put the pine star substance in a spraying container and spray it on, the more you spray, the thicker it will be. You can also get a, what people like to call, a Pine Rag, which is a rag that is covered in pine tar, then wiped on the bat. Remember! The more pine tar you add, the thicker it will be!
