Ron Washington caught smoking a cigarette in Rangers dugout (Video)

Ron-Washington-smokingThere are a number of designated smoking areas around the Ballpark in Arlington where smokers can go if they need a fix. To our knowledge, the Texas Rangers dugout is not one of them.

That didn’t stop Rangers manager Ron Washington. During the 9th inning of his team’s 11-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday night, Washington was caught by television cameras taking a puff of what appeared to be a cigarette. There’s always an outside chance it could have been one of those fake vapor cigarettes smokers use to help them overcome addiction, but I highly doubt it.

Getting through a game where 14 runs are scored without smoking cannot be easy for someone who is addicted to cigarettes. That being said, MLB has banned smoking in dugouts because it is a public relations nightmare. Washington will probably be hearing from the league.
