In 2011, Major League Baseball and the players’ union came to an agreement: For the most part, players wouldn’t use chewing tobacco where fans can see them. So, while some players still dip, many have turned to sunflower seeds and chewing gum. Outfielder Chris Colabello estimated 70 percent of Twins players chew seeds or gum during the games.
Police in Lincoln County, Wis., looking into a garage burglary last week say the thief was a real bear.
State regulators are moving to take over a sunflower seed company that may have left North Dakota farmers with more than $1.4 million in unpaid bills.
North Dakota farmers say a Minnesota-based company owes them money for sunflower seeds.
