Jim Leyland promises not to break Michigan's new smoking law

jim-leyland-smoke.JPGIt's a big day for the good people of Michigan.

The state's public smoking ban goes into effect today and applies to virtually all public workplaces.

That includes Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers, where cigarette enthusiast Jim Leyland calls the shots. He's been known to disappear into the tunnel between the dugout and clubhouse for a quick nicotine fix during games.

"I'm a law-abiding citizen, so it's just the way it is," Leyland said Friday, according to The Grand Rapids Press. "We're not supposed to smoke here, and I won't do it. I'll try to find someplace outside somewhere, I guess, but I think you're not supposed to smoke at all in the park."

Leyland could theoretically sneak out to the Camacho Cigar Bar inside Tiger Club -- an exempt portion of the ballpark to get his cigar on -- but points out that it's pretty difficult to get there during the game.
