Pine tar is very sticky and allows the batter to get a better grip of the bat when they use it on their batting gloves.

Well, they use it on the handle, not the middle. Pine tar is very, very sticky. It gives a very tight grip on the bat.

It typically gets them thrown out of the game. Pine tar gives better traction on the ball and lets the pitcher throw pitches that are harder for the batter to hit.

Why do baseball players put pine tar on their helmets?

Its not that they put pine tar on their helmets on purpose. Its from handling the bat with their gloves, then both adjusting/taking off their helmet. So it just transfers from bat to helmet via the glove. Sure they could clean their helmets after a game, but I'm sure its a superstitious thing with many baseball players to not clean the helmet. I'm sure you've seen tons of ball players with extremely dirty helmets... Also... ball players ''adjust'' the amount of pine tar on their gloves for preference by touching their helmet to take some of it off.
