Too bad. One of the greats and seemed like a great dude as well. This is why I've been trying to get my brother to stop putting that chit in his lip.

Well it is salivary cancer so it is chew more than likely, snuff goes up the nose.

is chew like cigs where it takes 20+ years of consistent use to kill you? is it chill to do it just occasionally?

Only in the 18th century. In modern day usage, chew is the coarse tobacco leafs that actually do need to be chewed (Red Indian). The finely grinded stuff you just leave between your lip & gums is now called snuff (skoal/Copenhagan)

Yes he dipped and it killed him. As a smokeless tobacco addict myself I hope those of you who haven't tried it never will, it's not worth dying way too young, not to mention how unattractive it is. Baseball lost a great player and a person today. Rest in peace Tony Gwynn.

Actually is more gross than smoking. And I'm a smoker. I never got into dip or chew, but when I used to play baseball id get some red man ever now and then.

434 Strikeouts in his 20 year career. 29/yr


Granderson has had 1200 in his 11 year career and has played less than half the season in 4 of those. 160/yr

IDK, people here call it dip or chew. Snuff is really just a tearm for smokeless tobacco so could be used for either. I know some guys the use snus as well.

Considering the era Gwynn played in, he's probably the best pure hitter we've seen since Ted.


Most of his hitting accomplishments are only surpassed by guys that played in the 1930's and earlier.

yeah definitely "dip" is the most popular, but the canisters themselves are printed with "snuff." Snus is "new," but in actuality just a copy of Skoal Bandits.

I usually recommend to all my tobacco using friends to get some Nic Juice for vaping & just put a small drop on the tongue to help take the edge off trying to quit. Its waaaaaay cheaper than nic gum/patches/sprays/dip & just as effective. Just wait a couple minutes for it to hit. Make sure to get 100% vg base, as the pg base breaks down into latic acid in the body and is not condusive to exercising.

I chew on occasion. Usually only when drinking but I really plan to stop. I don't get cravings for it as it is more just a social thing but after hearing chew killed him I'm gonna stop it altogether. It is a disgusting habit. Sad that he died but just like when a smoker dies of cancer, the person knew the risks that come along with that stuff.

Different plsyers man. Granderson is just power, and no where close to a hof player, and play in different times. Let's not compare

damn i didnt even know he was sick

then when i heard it was salivary gland cancer (or whatever it is), i didnt put 2 and 2 together.
that has to be pretty scary for some of the current baseball players who chew. but then again most people dont really think or care about the future, so maybe not


damn, salivary gland cancer? sht must be painful as fck

Oh i forgot they were pitching with footballs 20 years ago

Power hitting was apart of the game in during his time....McGwire, Sosa....


k's are k's doesn't matter what kind of hitter you are, brb 20k games by a pitcher mean nothing today because it's a "different time"
