Tony Gwynn's death raises issue of smokeless tobacco use in high schools, colleges

For the 20 years he was a major league player, Tony Gwynn said he tucked a dip of snuff on the right side of his mouth, between his cheek and gum.

Because he used snuff, which is finely ground tobacco, it wasn't as readily apparent as it would have been had he used leaf tobacco, which is chewed and creates a large, telltale bulge.

The bulge came later — the result of surgical procedures the Hall of Fame outfielder endured in an effort to remove cancerous growths in that cheek.
