Shea Stadium smoke-free in final year

There will be no lighting up at Shea Stadium this year. The New York Mets just announced the entire stadium will be smoke-free during the Mets' final season there.

The seats at Shea have been smoke-free for over 10 years, but now that applies to the ramps, too.

That smoke-free environment will follow the etam to their new home, Citi Field, when they move in.

This year, fans who can't sit through nine innings without a cigarette will have to go to a designated area reserved for smokers.
