MLB to ban smokeless tobacco for new players

Print Friendly

(WASHINGTON TIMES) A provision in Major League Baseball’s five-year labor deal would ban new players from using an old-time staple of the dugout — chewing tobacco.

The collective bargaining agreement with the players’ union bans all players from using smokeless tobacco in cities that have barred its use in sports venues, including Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.

Cancer-fighting groups cheered the news.
