Peanuts And baseball
My family recently attended a NY met game at citified. My youngest daughter age 9 has a severe peanut allergy. We were very nervous throughout the game due to the large amount of people eating peanuts. Peanut shells were every where throughout the ball park. We needed to move our seat a few times due to people eating peanuts next to us. I even had to carry my daughter out of her seat to the bathroom to avoid her walking in peanut shells. I wiped down her seat and wouldn't let her touch the railing. Still it was very difficult to enjoy the game while we were worried about her allergy I know the ball field has 1 day a year they designate as peanut free, but it really limits going to the ball game the rest of the year. My question is how do you stay safe at professional baseball games? Also with the growing number of food allergies, especially peanuts which are air borne are major league baseball teams taking any steps to accommodate people with allergies. Perhaps a peanut free section at the ball park would be a start. I would like to know others thoughts and experience with baseball games. I would hate to take going to baseball game away from her. Thank you
