Chris Sale says he quit chewing tobacco the day Tony Gwynn passed away
Sale said he stopped using chewing tobacco the day Tony Gwynn passed away
Sale he had been using chewing tobacco since 2007. He quit cold turkey on June 16, 2014, the day Gwynn passed away, and he hasn't touched the stuff since. Good for him. That's not an easy thing to do.
Gwynn, who was simply one of the best pure hitters in baseball history, passed away at the age of 54 following a battle with salivary gland cancer. His cancer has been attributed to the use of chewing tobacco throughout his playing career.
