Correction: actually according to their official websites, 21 of Major League Baseball's 30 ballparks either offer designated smoking areas or allow fans to exit the park and reenter by ticket scan, wristband, or other method. The two Ohio ballparks are mandated to ban smoking under stringent state laws. One should anticipate that California's rabid pursuit of public smokers will also extend their bans to stadium grounds, which are already in place in (gasp!) San Francisco and Oakland.

Didn't know there was a ban, I'd toss a Grizzly in last season all the time.

Wow, it sure is nice that they let us use a legal product in their pretty little park. Gotta have something to do at the game, since the product on the field aint worth watching.

By the end of May the Twinkies will be mathematically eliminated and fans will dwindle and Twins will be welcoming back smokers, drinkers and anyone with a buck.

So. .. certain legal tobacco products are legal here in the great state but other legal tobacco products are not? Good call, leaders. You will never be considered hypocrites by us little folk. How about this? The team was given a ballpark under the guise that they would "spend" more to be a contender, they have given us this (a few number three pitcher) and lied. What say I just find something else to do rather than pad your pockets? Call me in a few years with a real line-up, and I'll get back to you.

Electronic cigarettes will continue to be prohibited because they resemble regular cigarettes and emit a detectable vapor, Smith said. What? You have to be kidding me. Get a clue Twins.

Real classy--how about you can chew, but you can't SPIT on the grounds. Nasty. What a disappointment.
