Peanut-Free Baseball: Mahoning Valley Scrappers

In the past, Mahoning Valley Scrappers have offered peanut-free games but it doesn't look like one will take place this season. Peanut allergic fans and their families are disappointed, to say the least. One fan has started a Facebook page so those interested in encouraging the Mahoning Valley Scrappers to offer a peanut-free game can unite their voices. Bring back the peanut-free game for Mahoning Valley Scrappers fans!

If you support any kind of accommodation for peanut allergies at baseball games, be it a small seating section, a suite, a zone, or or a peanut-free game game, please "LIKE" the Facebook page for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers Fans for Peanut-Free Baseball to show your support. Thanks!
