From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pepper is a common pre-game exercise in baseball, where one player hits brisk ground balls and line drives to a group of fielders who are standing close by. The fielders try to make a play on the ball, and throw it back as quickly as possible. The batter then attempts to hit the return throw, and so on.

Some ballparks have banned pepper games because of the danger of balls landing in the stands and injuring spectators, leading them to display "NO PEPPER" warnings behind or near home plate. Major League Baseball has also discouraged pepper because it damages the infield grass.
