The long-standing combination of baseball and chewing tobacco will no longer be allowed in San Francisco.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee signed an ordinance Friday that bans the use of smokeless tobacco at all sporting venues in the city, which includes AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. The ordinance, which will take effect Jan. 1, 2016, makes it illegal for anyone -- including players -- to use smokeless tobacco at the venues.

They're going to have an awful lot of grouchy ball players. Earl Weaver's rolling over in his grave.

At least it will eliminate the "free advertising" for the chewing tobacco companies
