Reds Pitcher Ashcraft Told to Remove Wedding Band During Foreign Substance Check

Reds pitcher Graham Ashcraft was educated of a freshly enforced MLB rule in the course of a confusing scene early in Saturday’s property matchup from the Brewers.

As the proper-hander exited the mound right after the major of the 1st inning, Ashcraft was stopped by initial-base umpire John Tumpane for a routine international compound check out. As Tumpane examined the pitcher’s hands, he noticed a silicone wedding day band on Ashcraft’s glove hand, and immediately questioned him to get rid of it.

Ashcraft, who married his fiancée Emily in January 2021, could be seen asking Tumpane, “Since when?” as he continued his walk to the dugout. The 24-12 months-outdated didn’t go away the band considerably powering, nevertheless, as he finished the contest with it looped around his necklace.
