After Giants pitchers Madison Bumgarner and Jake Peavy told The New York Times they have been using smokeless tobacco since they were in fifth grade, Schilling voiced a warning to those two and to other players who dip. Speaking on ESPN Radio's Mike & Mike show, Schilling said he's done trying to tell people not to chew; instead, he just says that if players don't stop chewing, eventually they will get cancer. "You'll lose your sense of taste, you'll lose your sense of smell, your gums will bleed, your teeth will rot — that is if you're lucky," Schilling said. "If you're not you will wind up in the hospital receiving radiation above the neck."

Bumgarner, Peavy and the rest of the Giants won't be able to have them inside their home park at all beginning Jan. 1, when San Francisco becomes the first city in the U.S. to ban smokeless tobacco. Violators may be given citations if they're caught.“It’ll have to be a lofty fine,” Peavy told the Times. “Just because of the money guys are making. Or they’re not going to stop.”
