Tony Gwynn does not believe chewing tobacco should be banned in MLB

You'd think that Tony Gwynn would condemn the use of chewing tobacco and push Major League Baseball to make it a banned substance after contracting cancer last year.  You'd be wrong.

"There's a lot of people who think I should be the guy leading the charge," he said. "Everybody has to make their own decision. I made mine. Obviously, it wasn't a good one. Now I have to live with the results of that."

I'm not sure if it'd matter if Major League Baseball banned smokeless tobacco.  They barely enforce their current rules, whether it be the use of performance enhancing drugs,  fraternizing between opposing teams or the size of the strike zone.
