Nine-year-old Contestant Wins Trip to Little League Baseball World Series

CHICAGO, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Spit Tobacco Education Program (NSTEP) announced the winner of its annual slogan contest today, and encouraged young baseball players to talk to their coaches and parents about tobacco addiction and the health risks of using tobacco products, including spit and smokeless tobacco. This year's slogan contest winner is Joe Reck, a nine-year-old Little League Baseball player with the Walnut Creek Little League from Windsor Heights, IA, whose submission, "Take tobacco out of your lineup!" sends a clear message that tobacco has no place in the ballpark.

"We are so proud of Joe for winning the contest and speaking up against tobacco use," said his parents, Michael and Kristi Reck.

Joe's slogan will be featured on a baseball pin designed by NSTEP for distribution at the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, PA, from August 15-26, 2008. Joe wins a monetary award, a trip to the event with one of his parents, and an on-field award ceremony.
