Reds Light Up Cigars; Investigation Follows

The Cincinnati Health Department will conduct an inspection of the Great American Ball Park and the Reds' clubhouse it received call from people complaining that when Reds players lit up celebratory cigars after they clinched the NL Central it violated Ohio's smoking ban.

Department spokesman Rocky Merz said Friday that state law requires an inspection when it receives 5 complaints about indoor smoking.

Merz says an inspection must be done within 30 days and the Reds will be notified of the alleged violation.

It is unlikely anything will come of this.

No word if the Astros complained. They got beat that night for the clinch.
