Peanut Allergy Friendly Suite 2014: Kansas City Royals

We weren't sure if it was going to happen, but just recently, the Kansas City Royals announced they will be offering seating for fans with peanut allergies in a special suite for one game each month of this season. The first date scheduled is May 28. According to an article on kmbc.com, the suite can only hold a maximum of 21 people. The Royals are limiting ticket purchases to groups of no more than four people, so several families may enjoy the suite. For more information, please visit the Royals' website.

Peanut Allergy Friendly Ballpark 2014: Florence Freedom

This is very exciting news which was shared by a number of food allergy friends including Jennifer WC on our Facebook Page, Melanie and George on Twitter--the Florence Freedom have completely eliminated the sale of peanuts at their ballpark for the entire season. What a wonderful way to make individuals with peanut allergy feel more welcome! More noteworthy is the fact that the Florence Freedom have taken an additional step and are posting signs asking fans not to bring peanuts into the ballpark.

A big thanks goes out to all our food allergy friends who help keep peanutfreebaseball.com in the loop, so we can try to keep all interested baseball fans with food allergies in the loop!
