Durbin wants to ban tobacco from major league baseball games

“It will show their fans how much they love them,” added Durbin, who said he sent a letter to MLB and the player's association to make his request. "I hope the players will show the leadership I know they can."

Durbin said MLB's commissioner, Bud Selig, is strongly in favor of the ban but that the decision will likely come down to negotiations between the two organizations.
