If you’ve been following baseball news over the past few days, you know Clay Buchholz is in the crosshairs for allegedly doctoring baseballs. Cliff Lee was even accused of putting illegal substances on his hat.
Now, it looks like, Tim Hudson is the latest to be embroiled in controversy. From Kris Medlen’s Twitter:
The once-flawless integrity of Major League Baseball takes yet another hit.
The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.
Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.
My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
