Notes & Transcripts

We may think we are getting away with something, but there is no use trying to hide our sin. Joel Peralta discovered that while pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays against his former team, the Washington Nationals. The umpires, alerted by Nationals manager Davey Johnson, discovered pine tar in Peralta’s glove. Pitchers illegally put pine tar on the baseball to increase the movement on their pitches making them harder to hit. The umpires ejected Peralta from the game. When asked how he knew the pine tar was there, National’s manager Johnson said, “well, he pitched here.”

It doesn’t matter how deceitful we appear to be, we can hide nothing from the Lord. He is aware of all our tricks. –Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
