Suns make stadium smoke free

November 12, 2002

The Hagerstown Suns, together with the Washington County Health Department Cigarette Restitution Program, announced Monday that Municipal Stadium is now a "smoke-free" ballpark.

Except for designated smoking areas, smoking and the use of tobacco products will not be permitted at Hagerstown Suns games. The designated smoking areas will be away from the grandstand crowds, however, those who do choose to smoke will be able to, and still have a great view of the game from an alternative area.

"It simply makes our facility even more attractive to families and children, while still respecting the individual rights of our fans who are smokers," Suns general manager Kurt Landes said. "Our goal is to have the safest, cleanest facility possible ... We recognize the dangers of tobacco use and encourage all fans to not use tobacco-related procucts."

Additionally, the Hagerstown Suns and the Washington County Cigarette Restitution Program will be hosting a "Strike Out Tobacco" Night at Municipal Stadium during the 2003 season complete with speakers and messages with an anti-tobacco theme.
