Congress should keep its collective nose out of this. MLB should step up and make a decision on its own.

Congress is under the misapprehension that everyone and every industry they hate and want to destroy We the People also hate and want to destroy.
Congress, bureaucracies, and the media have no problem throwing thousands more workers onto the rolls of the unemployed if they're affiliated with the tobacco industry.
MLB is a government-controlled entity. They will do as they're told. The only upside is that while the Congress-nannies are ordering MLB to ban smokeless tobacco, they're temporarily preoccupied from destroying other sectors of what remains of our formerly free country.

F**king Idiots. Ban round balls while you're at it because they look like boobs and may influence young boys to like girls.

Henry Waxman, eh? That figures. Another politician having opinions on things that are none of his business.

He's another prime example of the need for term limits.
