A day at the ballpark is as American as apple pie or the 4th of July. With the MLB season just around the corner, the White Cloud team got to work compiling information from all 30 of the league’s stadiums on their electronic cigarette and tobacco policies. Years ago, it wasn’t uncommon to see cigars and cigarettes being smoked right in the grandstands, but with more and more major cities passing laws regarding indoor smoking, e-cigarette users are being pushed into designated smoking sections with cigarette smokers.
In 2016, the MLB began pushing to rid smokeless tobacco from the game, going so far as including a section in the Collective Bargaining Agreement that bans any rookies from using smokeless tobacco. Many MLB stadiums have implemented this rule as well, enforcing a strict no-tobacco policy stadium wide.
Check out the infographic below to see where stadiums still allow vapers to grab a few puffs between innings, and which stadiums do not.
