I’ve talked to quite a few parents who want to take their kids to Red Sox games, but worry about their child’s severe peanut allergy. We all know that Peanuts are a baseball stadium snacking tradition. They are even in a song you may have heard…Take me out to the ball game. Take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks. I don’t care if I never get back.
But, for many kids (and adults) those peanuts can cause severe reactions. Even if they are just sitting near someone who is eating them.
Because the team wants ALL Red Sox fans to be able to come out and enjoy a game at Fenway, they are offering Peanut Allergy Friendly Nights! On select nights, they will have a Peanut Free Section for fans who buy these special tickets in advance.
Red Sox Peanut Allergy Friendly Nights:
Tuesday June 27th
Sunday July 30th
Sunday August 6th
To purchase tickets for the Peanut Free Section e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, the Pawtucket Red Sox will be hosting two Peanut Free nights at McCoy Stadium. Those games are Monday, July 17th and Monday August 21st. Peanut products will not be sold anywhere throughout the ballpark during those two games. Those tickets are available on their website, or at the box office.
