The Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids is showing their leadership, once again in the professional baseball arena. Following their involvement in removing tobacco from the San Francisco Giants stadium in 2015 and other successes in the 2016 season, at the beginning of the 2017 season, there will now be 14 out of 30 MLB stadiums that have gone tobacco free.
