    Not glue. He caught it in his glove, then held it in his hand. Vaseline?

    To me it looks like the ball melted.

    With the word “dab” I’d also go with Brylcream. It’s a product for holding hair in place. I think the secret ingredient was grease. This is from the fifties.

    Good ol’ Gramps. I was thinking vegetable oil or something greasy. LOL!

    For our gocomics buddies in other countries, Nate is throwing the illegal “spitball,” in which the pitcher slightly wets one side of the baseball, causing it to move erratically and unpredictably toward the batter. As usual, Nate doesn’t grasp the meaning of the word “slightly.” (As to what was in the tube, I have no idea.)

    The “Spitball” is a special move in “Backyard Baseball 2005” used by pitchers so you’re right LOL

    They’ll probably still be selling it come this century’s “fifties”.
    Can’t believe I used to use it.

    I remember watching a game where the umps went out to the mound twice to check Gaylord Perry for foreign substances and didn’t find anything. Supposedly he put vaseline on his zipper because they never checked there.
