Mayor Marty Walsh has filed his proposed ban on smokeless tobacco products like dip and snuff from all Boston ballparks, from Fenway Park to neighborhood Little League fields.
The ban defines "smokeless tobacco products" as anything containing "cut, ground, powdered, or leaf tobacco ... intended to be placed in the oral or nasal cavity."
The ban would apply to everyone in a ballpark, from fans to players, and cover professional, collegiate, high school or organized amateur games.
If approved, the ban would take effect April 1 and violators would face a $250 fine. The Red Sox support the proposal.
