I play division 1 Baseball and I know many umpires make the tape mandatory because pine tar is sometimes used on the bats and can only be used so far up the bat. The tape is measured to that maximum height as a guide to enforce this rule I also play Division 1 baseball and the tape is used for pine tar limitations, but most players do that just for the look. It's just one of those trends in baseball that goes on and on. Some people have one strip and others could have multiple strips. It's more of a trend than a need.

What is musket ammunition?

Muskets are muzzle loaded weapons. This means the gunpowder, wad and bullet are all loaded down the barrel and packed into the bottom of the barrel using a ramrod. Therefore, they don't use conventional brass cased ammunition like that used in modern firearms. The powder is black powder or a black powder substitute. The wad is thin leather or cloth and is wrapped around the bullet itself and forced down the barrel to seat atop the powder charge. The bullet is cast lead round balls or the Minie ball, also made of cast lead. Muskets are usually around .50 caliber, but that can vary. Sometimes the powder, wad and bullet were all wrapped in paper making a complete cartridge but the end had to be ripped off and the powder still had to be poured into the barrel first.Hope this helps!

What kind of ammunition was used in muskets?

Muskets were muzzle loading firearms- MOST with smooth bores. They used gunpowder poured own the barrel, and a lead ball that was pushed down the barrel with a ramrod. RIFLED muskets might use a round lead ball wrapped in a greased cloth patch, or a lead Minie Ball- but still required powder to be poured down the barrel. The powder was sometimes wrapped in thin paper tubes (cartridges) that could be bitten open, and powder dumped down the barrel. Check Wikipedia for the term Minie Ball for more information.
