Terez, nothing quite like smoking a square in the dugout..

Michigan’s public smoking ban went into effect today over the weekend and applies to all public workplaces. That includes Comerica Park where cigarette aficionado Jim Leyland rips cigs like they’re going out of style..From time to time the Smoking Skipper sneaks into the tunnel and gets his fix..Not anymore…and he isn’t going to break the law.. “I’m a law-abiding citizen, so it’s just the way it is,” Leyland said Friday, according to The Grand Rapids Press. “We’re not supposed to smoke here, and I won’t do it. I’ll try to find someplace outside somewhere, I guess, but I think you’re not supposed to smoke at all in the park.” I’m sure Jim will find a way to get his nic fix..smoke em if you got em. -TO
