One manager from Chicago regulated the rule. Hilariously, it was out of utter cheapness that the rule came to be. One rule in major league baseball is that when a ball is scuffed or marked (for instance by pine tar), it must be replaced immediately. This owner realized that he was spending a good amount of money on replacing pine tar covered baseballs. He contacted the league officials and convinced them to enact this rule (basically so he could save money). Truly odd answer... but it is true!

Yes it is very harmful. My brother has a degree in biology and is very familiar on this subject.This is added later from another user. To better answer your question:Pine tar it self is not harmfull in any way to your skin, and the pine tar it self is one of the most effective ways to treat prosthesis. However as you said, pine tar is Harmful. Well Yes and No. The pine tar is self is not harmful, but it is the Creosote that is harmfull not the pine tar it self. Creosote is a know skin irritant / carcinogen.It depends on how the pine tar is made. if the pine tar is made and the smoke from the fire in the kiln can not mix with the pine tar, then the pine tar has no know skin irritation documented anywere. seeing as 95% of all soap companies use PINE TAR OIL FILLD WITH CREOSOTE, it is hard to get away from this fact. but there are some companies that use Creosote Free pine tar in their soaps and other products, unfortunalty the most popular brand of pine tar soap is grandpa's brand, which uses this pine tar OIL with Creosote in it. My sister tried their pine tar soap and she broke out with a rash that she had to go to the doctor for.Now here is a company that makes a Creosote free Pine tar soap. we have tried it and it is wonderful. their web-site is www.khtradingpost.com .thanks hope this helpsTo Clarify: Are we talking about psoriasis the skin condition or someone with a prosthesis (artificial limb) who has skin tenderness issuesUM, sorry but your both wrong. Unless the U.S makes soaps different from the UK.Creosote soap was A.K.A Coal Tar soap, not Pine tar.Most pine tar soaps are now 100% natural vegetable oils and perfectly safe for use, infact reccommended for people with skin problems.You can find examples on eBay. Christina may I believe.Companies no longer mix wood preservatives and oils together in the making of soap, times have changed people.Unless the U.S. still do, but in Europe Coal Tar soap and the derivatives are banned. Pine tar soap 100% natural vegetable oil .. fine for use.Thank you and goodnight.p.s. I have an honours and masters degree in Biology. JFYI
It can be, depending upon the formulation of the pine tar, the concentration, and the amount consumed by the horse. Concentrated pine tar is pretty bitter, so most horses won't eat it unless forced to. Pine sap, on the other hand, is fairly safe for horses.
Pine tar is a sticky substance. Pro baseball players frequently apply pine tar to the handle of their bats because the bats are made entirely of wood, which is very slippery. Pine tar makes it possible to get a better grip on the bat. Whether applying pine tar to the barrel of a bat gives the hitter an advantage is debatable. However, some people think that applying pine tar to the barrel of a bat changes its interaction with the ball in flight. A stickier bat is more likely to make solid contact, and thus result in more hits.
The best way is to spray it on with a spray jar. Put the pine star substance in a spraying container and spray it on, the more you spray, the thicker it will be. You can also get a, what people like to call, a Pine Rag, which is a rag that is covered in pine tar, then wiped on the bat. Remember! The more pine tar you add, the thicker it will be!
No. It will get moldy when the pine tar oozes out. Keep them dry.
