Tobacco Free?

Marlins fans no doubt are aware that one of the big sponsors on TV this year is the "Campaign for a Tobacco Free Florida". The ads in the campaign feature Marlins players pledging that they don't smoke, dip or chew tobacco. Well, tonight during the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Marlins, just seconds after the announcers mentioned the Campaign for a Tobacco Free Florida, the camera zoomed in on Dan Uggla who was loading up a cheekful of chaw.

I bet those folks who bought all that ad time are really pleased with that.

I thought the MBL had a ban on tobbaco products in the dugout? It's makes a bad impression on the kids seeing baseball players the idolize using tobacco products. They think that if it's ok for Uggla using it, then it ok for them! Dan set a bad example for the everyone!
