There’s many new laws going into place in the state of California starting New Year’s Day 2017. This new seems pretty sensible: You can no longer smoke, or use electronic cigarettes within 250 feet of a youth sporting event.
Senate Bill 977, by Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, bans the use of cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes and other tobacco products within 250 feet of a youth sports activity. The law applies to people smoking that close to a game only if they are at the same park or facility where it is taking place.

Numerous health groups supported the bill & Governor Jerry Brown signed it back in September.
