Is dipping making a comeback in MLB?
I'm noticing a LOT more players using smokeless tobacco during games. Practically all players did it in the '70's-early '90's, then it just seemed to have completely disappeared.

You sure it is dip?

quote:

Fines from cities with new smokeless tobacco bans at ballparks won't be the only penalties violators could face, according to a senior Major League Baseball official.

"Players or anybody in baseball found to have violated a law are subject to discipline from the commissioner," MLB chief legal counsel Dan Halem told "Outside the Lines." "Smokeless tobacco laws are no different."

Halem said that, under Article XII of the five-year collective bargaining agreement that runs through this year, the commissioner could have "just cause" to discipline players for "conduct that is prejudicial or detrimental to Baseball" if they break the new tobacco laws

Nope, and it likely never will. The MLB has taken a hard stance against it since Tony Gwynn died of cancer caused by it

They are trying to push coffee grind dip pouches more now on players and coaches. Saw some from SHark Tank called Grinds making it big now.

Gwynn's battle with cancer began in 2009 when a malignant tumor was removed from his right cheek. Gwynn claimed that the cancer in the salivary gland was the result of his longtime habit of chewing tobacco. The cancer returned twice, and in the latter part of '12, he again began radiation treatment in an attempt to shrink the tumor.

No one has proved he got cancer because he chewed tobacco. He just wanted someone to blame.. cool

No, it is not and it will not.

The new CBA banned smokeless tobacco for new MLB players (current major leaguers were grandfathered in) and it has been banned in the minors for a while.

re: Is dipping making a comeback in MLB?
while dipping has been linked to a shite ton of cancers of the mouth/tongue/jaw i believe in gwynns case he had a type of cancer that has never really been shown to be linked to dipping

now that may be different now considering i read that 18 months ago but thats what i read

I am not in here saying dipping/chewing is good for you. Obviously it is not. But there are a ton of studies that say smokeless tobaccos link to oral cancer is very minimal if any. You are at more risk for tooth loss and gum disease. I have known a couple people with tongue and mouth cancer, both of which have never smoked or dipped.

re: Is dipping making a comeback in MLB?
SI article

quote:

Officially, the cause of Gwynn’s death was complications related to parotid cancer, a rare malignancy of the salivary gland. Even as he wasted away, Gwynn was convinced of a link between his cancer and smokeless tobacco, his unshakeable routine for more than three decades; his malignant tumor had grown from the same tiny space inside his right cheek where he’d always gotten his fix. Initially, in media reports at the time of Gwynn’s death, the link between Gwynn’s habit and his cancer was questioned by two of Gwynn’s San Diego-based doctors: Prabhakar Tripuraneni, the head of radiation oncology at Scripps Clinic; and Loren Mell, a consultant of the Gwynns who is the chief of head and neck radiation oncology service at the Moores Cancer Center. Even as they acknowledged that smokeless tobacco could lead to plenty of heath problems, “in the case of parotid cancers, there’s not a single, unified cause that’s identified,” Mell told the San Diego Union Tribune in 2014. “He may have chewed tobacco, but that’s not likely to be the cause.” But Mell is reconsidering that position since reviewing a key piece of clinical research that has emerged as part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Gwynn’s family in Superior Court last month.


While it hasn't been proven, I'd still take the guy's dying words for truth, since he was the one dying from it and it came from the same spot he used it for 30 years.
