CelebnSports247.com Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer was quickly annoyed on Tuesday as Major League Baseball continues to crack down on pitchers using foreign substances to control the ball.
Here’s the tea, Max Scherzer, for his part, appeared outwardly dismayed when the umpiring crew checked his hat and his glove for foreign substances twice over the first three frames. Girardi, perhaps detecting that he could further fluster Scherzer, then asked the umpires to check him once more during the bottom of the fourth inning. That’s when things went sideways. – CBSSports

According to reports, umpires are checking pitchers in between innings to see if they’re using anything illegal. They are enforcing the new rules and they are NOT playing around about it.

After the first inning, Scherzer was stopped on his way off the mound. He was clearly not thrilled with needing to be inspected.
Later in the game, he tossed his glove on the ground as well as his hat and started to unbuckle his belt.
