Jake's Mint Chew, a locally manufactured, all natural mint chew designed to help tobacco users switch to a healthier, fresher dipping option, has finally hit the Big Leagues. Several Major League Baseball clubs interested in keeping their players, managers, and staffs healthy have placed sizable orders with the Massachusetts-based start up with the hopes of initiating a positive trend in professional and amateur sports.
Last year as part of the collective bargaining agreement, Major League Baseball took a monumental first step towards the abolishment of chewing tobacco on the field by prohibiting their players, managers, and coaches from carrying tobacco tins or packages in their uniforms at games or any time that fans are in the ballpark. They will also be prohibited from using smokeless tobacco during televised interviews, at autograph signings, and other events where they meet fans, or at team-sponsored appearances. By offering a wide variety of flavors with organic ingredients, Jake's Mint Chew was the best choice for ball clubs like the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, and Baltimore Orioles, who were among the first to make this transition away from harmful chewing tobacco.
For Jake Sweeney, the man behind the Mint Chew, the MLB's proactive move toward tobacco cessation is a home run. "We started Jake's Mint Chew to give people a refreshing, healthy way to break away from the addiction tobacco creates," Sweeney admits, "but we hope that having several Major League Baseball clubs on board with that message will help even more people quit this terrible habit for good."
Since Jake's Mint Chew began two years ago, the company has grown so much that it has begun developing relationships with mint growers from the Pacific Northwest, which will also ensure that they will be ready for the imminent influx of orders from people taking a cue from their Big League heroes.
