Baseball Chewing Tobacco

Chewing Tobacco

At just about any baseball game, you'll see baseball players chewing and spitting all around the field. Chewing tobacco (AKA dip, chew, or smokeless tobacco) was mostly used in the earlier days of the game also used by players to keep their mouths moist, so that they could spit in their gloves to keep them moist, to channel nervous energy, or to keep busy when there isn't much action going on during the game.

Alternatives To Chewing Tobacco

Most MLB stadiums now no longer allow chewing tobacco as it's been linked to several health risks, including cancer. Players now use safer alternatives like chewing gum or sunflower seeds.
