02 May San Francisco Placing a Ban Chewing Tobacco From Ballparks
What do you think about this?
San Francisco city supervisors have unanimously voted “to prohibit the use of smokeless tobacco at athletic venues, specifically singling out baseball, which has a long history of players masticating and spitting tobacco juice in view of children who worship them.”
A Washington Post article (4/22) said ” If the plan is approved, the city would be the “first in the nation” to ban on-field use of chewing tobacco by players, and it would apply to both “home and visiting professional players at AT&T Park, in an effort to keep them from modeling the unhealthful practice for children and other fans.”
We’ll have to wait and see what results this will bring.
