After commissioner Rob Manfred spent the entire 2017 season denying the baseballs were “juiced,” Major League Baseball has appointed a committee to conduct a study to determine whether that’s actually the case.
According to Kristie Ackert of the Daily News, Mets assistant general manager John Ricco confirmed the league’s study after it was revealed during this week’s general managers meeting in Orlando. Ricco adds that the league’s early findings have yet to suggest any notable changes to the baseball, but the investigation is still on-going.
“They talked to us about the committee they put together that is currently in the midst of studying it,” Ricco said. “They have put together a high-level panel of physicists and scientists to study the ball and early returns are that really not much has changed. But we’ll see what they say at the end.”
