Baseball and The Ban On Smokeless Tobacco

Posted on July 26, 2017 by Sam Maddali

On November 30, 2016 Major League Baseball put a new collective bargaining agreement into place. As part of this agreement, all new players are prohibited from using smokeless tobacco while current players are grandfathered in and may continue to use. This means baseball will one day be free of smokeless tobacco. With over 2.5 million players, both boys and girls, trying to emulate their favorite player this rule sets a great example for America’s youth.

And while the MLB rule is a step in the right direction, stadiums have been taking it a step further. Currently ordinances have been passed in Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, NYC, Washington D.C., Milwaukee, Tampa Bay, and St. Louis prohibiting the use of smokeless tobacco at sporting venues. A statewide law went into effect in California.
