Peanut-free baseball?

I know! It doesn’t even sound American, right?

Considering more than three million Americans suffer from some sort of peanut allergy, ranging from just a small rash to the potential of death, the tradition of peanuts and Cracker Jacks can take a backseat for a few Minnesota Twins games this season.

The Twins today announced the Skybox will be peanut-free and available exclusively for individuals with peanut allergies and their families for four games during the 2007 season.

The peanut-free skybox dates are:
Wednesday, June 27 vs. Toronto Blue Jays – 7:10 p.m. CT
Tuesday, July 31 vs. Kansas City Royals – 7:10 p.m. CT
Monday, August 20 vs. Seattle Mariners – 7:10 p.m. CT
Monday, September 17 vs. Texas Rangers – 7:10 p.m. CT

Those with peanut allergies can reserve their seats in a peanut-free zone right here.

    Delighted to see baseball opening up to people with peanut allergies.
