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!

I am copying and pasting the info below. Please note I am not the author of the below info. I believe the author may be Eli K of the Red Sox, but I am not certain.

2014 Boston Red Sox Peanut Allergy Friendly Initiative


For the tenth year, the Boston Red Sox will welcome Peanut-Allergy fans to Fenway Park once again in 2014.  In coordination with the New England Chapter of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, the Red Sox make a concerted effort to help all fans to see Boston Red Sox Baseball at Fenway Park. Many of the changes to this season’s Peanut Allergy Friendly initiatives were in response to the 2013 Peanut Allergy Survey.

Peanut Allergy Friendly Section Ticketing
To purchase tickets to one of these three dates, please email peanutallergy@redsox.com.  In order to ensure that everyone who wants tickets in the Peanut Allergy Friendly section receives the opportunity to purchase them, we limit the purchaser to 8 tickets.

 Once your tickets have been purchased and as the game date approaches, I will send out waivers to be signed and the Fenway Park concessions allergen list.


Booth F:

Booth F will be available one game per homestand for families whose children have extremely severe allergies. Additional opportunities may arise throughout the season.  This booth is a smaller enclosed space and is in a more secluded part of the ballpark.

§  Located on Media Level of Fenway Park

§  Tickets are available once per homestand

§  A Fenway Ambassador will be the contact for this family for the duration of the game


Booth F Ticketing 

Booth F tickets will be available on a first come first serve basis. Please email peanutallergy@redsox.com so I can put you on our 2014 wait list.  Precedence will be given to those families who have not yet attended a 2014 Peanut Allergy Friendly game or had the opportunity to watch a game from Booth F this season.  Once an available date for Booth F is finalized, I will reach out to groups at the top of our wait list. 

Once your tickets have been purchased and as the game date approaches, I will send out waivers to be signed and the Fenway Park concessions allergen list.



§  Waivers must be signed before attending a peanut allergy friendly game as we cannot guarantee a peanut free environment.

§  Please note that Fenway Park is NOT Peanut Free. We use the term Peanut Allergy Friendly as we know there are fans who attend Fenway Park that will eat peanuts in other areas of the park. 

§  After every game I will send out a survey in which I would like all participants to answer. This survey will help us gain knowledge on how to better improve your experience here at Fenway Park.

§  Please contact me throughout the season with updated emails and phone number changes. This is to ensure that everyone stays in the loop and has a fair chance to purchase tickets to our peanut allergy friendly games.

For any suggestions, questions, or information on Peanut Allergy Friendly games please email Eli Kaufman at: peanutallergy@redsox.com
