On Tuesday, the Cincinnati Reds clinched their first division title and playoff appearance in 15-years. The Reds beat the Houston Astros 3-2, when outfielder Jay Bruce hit a walkoff home run. Celebrating in style, players smoked victory cigars in the clubhouse, causing five Cincinnatians, who were at home watching the game, to call the Health Department to report a violation.
Under Ohio law, no one can smoke indoors, which includes baseball parks. The Heath Department will send Reds owner Bob Castellini an official letter notifying him of the violation.Within the next 30 days, a health inspector will make an unannounced visit to the clubhouse to investigate further violations. If he finds anyone smoking in the clubhouse, the Reds will be fined $100.00.
