Thursday, May 28, 2009 gets a little press got a nice little mention in the following Press Democrat article,
Peanuts not ballpark treat for everyone. Very glad to help make finding peanut-free and food-free seating at baseball games a little easier. Althought has only been around for a few months, I collected info on peanut-free and food-free seating last year as well, for, my primary site. There was SO much information, a dedicated website seemed appropriate for this season.

If you know of a peanut-free or food-free seating area or game which should be included, please feel free to email the info to me at Thanks!

Schaumburg Flyers Had Peanut-Free Opening Game

I did not hear about this game until after the fact, but it is worth recording here for next year. The Schaumburg Flyers opening night on May 22 was peanut-free. Those of you in the Schaumburg, Illinois area who missed opening night this season may want to make a mental note of this peanut-free event for next season.

West Michigan Whitecaps Peanut Free Days

Press release regarding the Whitecaps Peanut-Free Days:

Peanut Free Days Coming to Fifth Third Ballpark

May 22nd, 2009
COMSTOCK PARK – The West Michigan Whitecaps will soon give fans with peanut allergies a chance to enjoy a baseball game. The Whitecaps will hold peanut free days during their games against Quad Cities on Tuesday, May 26 at 6:35 p.m. and Wednesday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m.

All peanuts and peanut products will be moved off site and the entire ballpark will be cleaned to remove as many of the leftover peanut shells as possible. Also, any product containing peanuts or nuts, including sunflower seeds, will not be sold during the games.

“We’ll be giving the whole ballpark a thorough cleaning to try to take care of any peanut residue,” said
Whitecaps Director of Food and Beverage Matt Timon. “While we won’t sell or cook peanuts that day, the Whitecaps can’t guarantee that there won’t be peanut residue in the park or that other fans won’t sneak peanuts into the ballpark.”

Timon added the Whitecaps’ vendors are on board with the decision to go peanut free.

“This is an important day for us,” said Timon. “Our vendors who sell peanuts and other peanut products have been incredibly supportive and they’re just as excited as we are to be able to offer this opportunity to people who would not normally be able to come to the ballpark.”

This will be the seventh season that the Whitecaps have offered peanut free days.

“Peanuts are as much a part of baseball as a home run,” said Whitecaps Director of Marketing and Media Relations Mickey Graham. “Unfortunately some fans aren’t able to come out to the ballpark because of their peanut allergy. We are giving those fans, especially kids, a chance to experience the ballpark atmosphere.

The Whitecaps return home to kick off a 10-game homestand on Tuesday, May 26 against the Quad Cities River Bandits at 6:35 p.m. Season, group, and individual tickets are on sale and can be purchased at the West Michigan Glass Block Ticket Office at Fifth Third Ballpark, by calling the Whitecaps front office at 616-784-4131 or visiting
