Anyone have any luck on getting non-nut areas at sporting events in the last couple of years?

We have not braved any basball games yet. In Massachusetts, I hear a Lowell Spinners Game is a really great take in for kids. I would love to hear from anyone who perhaps has been to a Lowell Spinners game.

Yes, we have taken our son to baseball games (as well as many other things). We follow almost the exact same procedures that Tlsmom posted about. We did avoid baseball games when he was little (ie, 2-5 years old) because it wasn't something he wanted to do, and there is the risk of peanuts. But once he got to be about 6 years old, he started collecting bball cards and really got interested in it, so we have taken him.

If anyone lives in CT, check out the Hardware City Rock Cats. They are a minor league team and have hosted peanut-free nights. They have done this for at least the previous two seasons. There is information about it on their Web site. I think that minor league teams are generally more family-friendly and therefore might be more open to banning peanuts for at least one game.

We get to as many games as we can afford to (not nearly enough at those prices!) as soon as spring comes. We wipe down seats, place DS in the middle of a group and are very vigilant about what people are eating. We've never had a problem. The one time someone near us was eating peanuts he threw them out immediately upon overhearing our conversation. It turned out his nephew is PA too.

We don't get to Big League games, but the West Michigan White Caps is in our town. Last year their was a child who has a severe PA, and the owners of the WMWC declared a peanut free day. It was a great success. They didn't realize that so many West Michigan People were allergic and could never go to a baseball game. The game this year is on June 2!!

My son has been a member of the Baltimore Orioles Dugout Club for 3 years now. He attends many games each year

I sent the Lowell Spinners an e-mail and here's the answer they gave me:
Sorry, but I don't think we will be of any assistance in your search for a
safe peanut free environment. We do not have a peanut free section and we
do not have a peanut free game.

What about other sporting events? We live near Univ. of Idaho (go Vandals!) and go to as many sporting events as we can. I'm always nervous though about our 7 yr. old (pn, tn, shellfish, peas allergic) putting her hands on the seats. Literally everytime there are people around us eating candy that I know contains peanuts. The other day a little girl sitting by us had a baggie full of trail mix chock full of peanuts! I guess I'm just curious if some of you only avoid baseball games or sporting events altogether.
