A Farmingdale facility trains young baseball players to throw without the help of Spider Tack or sticky things.
Sticky things are sometimes put on baseball to get a better grip.
Major League Baseball has cracked down on it, but now the drug gets increased scrutiny even in local sports.
The drug has been used in baseball for a long time. Throwers have learned to use it to their advantage, which makes baseball spin a little harder.
Bobby DeMichael is the owner of Performance Factory Baseball in Farmingdale.
He is a former pitcher himself and thinks it is a good idea for the drug to be investigated.
DeMichael and his team have used some high-tech equipment to help his high school and college players develop their skills without sticky things.
