The accusations about the Houston Astros pitching staff juicing balls may have legs after all.
Astros pitcher Lance McCullers took the mound in Thursday’s game against the Yankees, and a photo of his cleats from the fifth inning of the game went viral.
The reason is because a foreign substance was shown on McCullers’ right cleat, which you can see below.
McCullers offered an explanation after the game, stating that it was a hard plastic to cover a hole in his shoe.
If the hole really was an issue, why didn’t he just get a new pair of cleats?
