"When I managed, I didn't like it when my players got hurt. If someone got hit in the wrist with a pitch, I'd run out, spit some of my tobacco juice on his wrist, and rub it in. It's amazing how many guys shook off their injuries once I started spitting on them."—Trader Jack McKeon
"Baseball players like chewing tobacco because it gives them a legitimate reason to spit. They can spit on the floor, spit at your shoes, or if they are neat, they can spit into a cup. But the idea is spitting and what fun it is to spit."—TV Host Pete Franklin
"I'm a pretty easy going girl ... but spitting tobacco juice is gross. Sunflower seeds okay, A-Rods into that, I see him spitting up a storm all the time.
If some guy ever spit tobacco juice on my shoes I'd either vomit all over him or give him a black eye. One or the other that's for sure." — Weber
