What is “rosin,” the substance that Edwin “Sugar” Diaz allegedly had excess on his hands?

The Puerto Rican reliever Edwin “Sugar” Diazof the New York Metsmade headlines Sunday night after he was ejected from the game against the Chicago Cubs for allegedly having an illegal substance on his hands and glove.

The ejection occurred in the ninth inning, before Diaz could throw a pitch. The decision to eject Diaz was made by third base umpire Vic Carapazza, who was acting as head of umpires at the match.

When speaking with reporters after the expulsion, Diaz assured that what he had in his throwing hand was rosinwhich translates into Spanish as rosin or resin.

“I always wear the same thing,” Diaz said. “I mix resin with sweat and get my hand a little dirty with dirt to have a better grip on the ball,” the Puerto Rican insisted.

However, Carapazza later emphasized that “that was definitely not resin and sweat. “It was very sticky.”
