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.
Pine tar is sticky and helps them grip the bat.
Baseball players use pine tar for more accurate grip when they are batting.
football players put air in theIR helmets because it is used to fill up space if the helmet is too big or some helmets have special pads that blow up that are more comfortable
It aids in the gripping of the bat, also it is referred to as "pine tar"
Pine tar is very sticky and allows the batter to get a better grip of the bat when they use it on their batting gloves.
for grip, so the bat will not slip out of their hands while swinging

Ice on their what? Icing is a form of relaxing your muscles.

No, Don't put pine tar on your dog.
No. It will get moldy when the pine tar oozes out. Keep them dry.
It keeps the sweat out of their eyes. Football players sweat a lot under those helmets and when they take them off, it will roll into their eyes. Some guys wear the skull caps under their helmets for the same reason, and so that their helmet doesn't pull their hair out when they take it off.
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.
