Braves pitcher Tim Hudson was working up a serious sweat on the mound during Tuesday night’s game against the San Diego Padres. In the bottom of the 2nd inning all that perspiration got to be too much for the 37-year-old, so he dried his sweaty shaved dome with the best available option he had at the time…the rosin bag. Hudson’s impromptu drying session with the rosin bag has to be a first in Major League Baseball history, which is somewhat surprising given the fact that rosin is used by pitchers mainly as a way of keeping their throwing hands dry, and there seems to be fair number of hurlers over the years who were either naturally bald, or shaved their head for that smooth, easy-to-manage Michael Jordan look. Here’s video of Hudson and his unconventional, albeit clever, use of the rosin bag  (via MLB.com)… Who know, maybe Hudson’s newfound use of the rosin bag will catch on. Sure it’s unhygienic and somewhat gross, especially for the other pitchers who have to use the same rosin bag, but it sure beats running the risk of getting sweat in your eyes, or ruining the headband of a perfectly good baseball cap. The post Tim Hudson used rosin bag to dry his sweaty, freshly shaved head appeared first on Last Angry Fan.
