We live near a major league baseball team and love to watch them, we want to take our pn dd to a game. My dh called to speak with someone about our dd and see if they could offer a way for her to be at the game and be safe. Their only advise was to purchase a private box (for many $$$s) or not to come at all. Have any of you found a way to attend games safetly or is this a losing battle? And have you experienced the same hostility?

Our expereinces have been pretty good. For MLB we went with a large group, kept my son in the middle and no one had any peanuts. At the circus and a minor league baseball game, I call ahead to ask what type of accomidation are available to a peanut allergic guest and they have all worked with us. I am working on the bobcats areana next (basketball). Are they willing to let you move if your are not comfortable in your seats? It can be done, I would consider speaking with someone else at your baseball park before you give up.

Although I never took them up on this, when I asked the Arizona Diamondbacks about this a few years ago, they said we could opt to sit in the handicapped seating area. There is no ban on peanuts there, but it is a single row, so it's easier to avoid.

I plan on taking my daughter to a game, but she has never seemed to have an airborne reaction. I will wait another year though...shes still a little too young at 3.5. We do go to hockey games and she does fine there, but it doesnt compare to how many people eat peanuts at baseball games.

Thanks for the post on the Diamondbacks. My husband is the hugest baseball fan and my little 3 yo PA son's room has been decorated with old Cubs memorilbia (sp?) since before he was born. We haven't felt safe taking him to a baseball game yet.. thinking about spring training in the grass though. What do you think about being at a baseball game when the roof is closed (which is almost every day)? Does anyone have an opinion on being in an open air stadium or closed stadium. My son is not airborne allergic... I think.

More than anything my husband wants to be able to share his favorite hobby with our son. His one year old pics were taken in Diamondbacks outfits/baseball gear... my husband is so hoping this year he can take him to a game or two. Andrea

We took my daughter to several baseball games last year. She is 8, and not likely to pick up things or touch everywhere. There are only 4 of us, though, and even with sitting her in the middle of us we had occasions where people behind us have been eating peanuts and have thrown shells on the floor that have fallen near her feet. When I told the people about it they threw their shells somewhere else. She is not airborn reactive and did not react to this. However, it did make her (and me) uncomfortable.

Check out this link from last season as an example of what can be done. Not sure if MLB would be this willing to work with you but who knows?...
