My Latest Guardian Feature

I would just like to point you in the direction of my latest Guardian feature, exploring the recent attempts to rid chewing tobacco from Major League Baseball. You can read the piece here.

New York City recently joined San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago in banning chaw from city sporting venues, which means one of baseball’s murkiest traditions may be less visible this season.

In the article, I explore the history of chewing tobacco, explain how it became ingrained in the culture of baseball, and explore the prolonged campaign to see the product banned from our game.

Please enjoy the article, and share it with others who may be interested.
