MLB: No complaints regarding illegal substance in Jon Lester’s glove
|10.24.13 at 11:54 am ET|
A Major League Baseball official offered the following feedback regarding the questions about whether Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester used an illegal substance in his 7 2/3 shutout innings in Game 1 of the World Series: “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.” For now, then, it appears that the issue is not one that is subject to a specific investigation, though the league official noted that the question of whether a ball is being doctored is “an issue we always monitor anyway.”
