Going to a baseball game this season? Leave your cigarettes at home.

Coca-Cola Field and the James D. Griffin Plaza around the ballpark are now 100 percent smoke-free and tobacco-free. This includes the use of vapor or e-cigarettes, as well as chewing tobacco.

There is also a strict no re-entry policy now in place for all ballpark events. Fans will no longer be allowed to temporarily leave to use tobacco-related products.

“This policy is knocking tobacco out of the park for good," said Anthony Billoni, Director of Tobacco-Free Western New York.

"The Buffalo Bisons organization is excited to share these new policies, which ensure a fun and comfortable environment for all our fans attending Coca-Cola Field," said Mike Buczkowski, team Vice President and General Manager.
