World Series Resumes Tonight with Boost for Tobacco-Free Baseball

October 27, 2011

ABC World News Now reports on young baseball players who started chewing tobacco as teens and now can't break their addiction. Southern Baptist leader Dr. Richard Land and ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine tell the network that Major League Baseball must provide better role models.

Says Valentine: 'The message is this–wise up! We have to put forth a better face, and that face has to be one without a bulge in our lip.'

Watch the video and then tell the players' union to agree to a tobacco ban in the next contract.
