PRIORITIES: California Democrat seeks to ban chewing tobacco from baseball

February 24, 2015

California Assemblyman Tony Thurmond is expected to introduce a bill Tuesday that seeks to ban chewing tobacco from all Major League Baseball stadiums in the state.

The bill comes less than a year after retired San Diego Padres outfielder Tony Gwynn died from cancer of the salivary glands, Reuters reported.

“Tony Gwynn was somebody I thought was a spokesman for baseball, a great role model as a person,” said Mr. Thurmond, a Democrat. “I’m hopeful that this bill will lend to his legacy, that it will help to prevent illness for young people and young athletes.”
