We used to bet kids who had never seen Rex in action that he could catch a baseball thrown as high as they could throw it. He almost never let us down. Rex could hold a baseball with ease in his mouth, in one cheek, as if it were a chew of tobacco.
What does `in one cheek' mean in this sentence?
Could anyone explain it?
It means on the inside of one cheek, not both cheeks.
Smokeless tobacco = chewing tobacco comes in shredded, twisted, or "bricked" tobacco leaves that you put inside your mouth between your cheek and gum.
In the United States, chewing tobacco has long been associated with baseball. Players chewed it to keep their mouths moist, spit it into their gloves to soften them up, and used it to make a "spitball," a special pitch that involved the pitcher dabbing the ball with saliva to cause it to spin off the fingers easily and break sharply.Read more here.
