Smokeless tobacco banned from Milwaukee sports venues

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE, WI (WNEM) -

One state is knocking smokeless tobacco out of the park.

The common council in Milwaukee overwhelmingly supported the ban on chewing tobacco at all sports venues -- 14 to one.

Major League players can now be fined up to $250 for using smokeless tobacco at Miller Park.

We want to know your thoughts on the ban.
