Player Addison Reed quits tobacco after Gwynn's death

  • Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn blamed his cancer on his habit of chewing tobacco and even came forward to talk about its dangers. His death last week is caused due to this ill-habit. 

    It appears that Diamondbacks reliever Addison Reed got the message and decided to quit tobacco after Gwynn's death. 

    "It's one of those things where I've done it for so long it's just become a habit, a really bad habit," he said. "It was something I always told myself I would quit, like next month, and the next thing you know it's been six or seven years."
