Boston Red Sox’s Jonny Gomes with a solid spit. Whether it was his dramatic display of dip that propelled his team to victory, that is for history to decide.

One week into the chewing tobacco ban at Yankees Stadium and Citi Field, we look back at classic chomps and other oral opuses in the storied halls of America’s pastime.

Tim Lincecum realizing he’s spitting on camera

While taking the mound for the San Francisco Giants, Tim Lincecum was making a mound of his own in the dugout. After spitting out once, twice, Lincecum noticed the camera pointed directly at him before he totally struck out at the old ball game.

James Shields throws his dugout mates a curveball

Bartolo Colon: Chewing while exercising

This Cy Young winner never ceases to amaze the crowd even when he’s just warming up. Though you might not be able to see him clearly as he’s wearing camouflage, if you look closely, you’ll see that Bartolo Colon has figured out how to exercise and chew at the same time. Incredible.

Matt Harvey’s calm before the storm

If there’s one trait a pitcher needs, it’s an ability to remain as calm as Bartolo Colon’s nutritionist. Here, the Mets’ Matt Harvey takes just the slightest of breathes before winding up.

He might not be a member of the MLB, but James Earl Jones just saying the word, “Baseball,” is enough to warrant him serious consideration for induction into the Hall of Fame. Subtle. Powerful. Elegant. This is what baseball truly is and Jones’ delivery captures its essence like Bartolo Colon captures roast beef.
