It is opening day for America’s favorite pastime and parks across the country are increasingly doing away with baseball’s iconic snacks, to support fans with peanut allergies.

Many major — and minor — league baseball teams have named specific game days as “peanut free.”

Other teams have designated certain areas of the stadium as “peanut-controlled.”

That means there’s a chance peanut particles or residue could be detected.. because nuts are served in other areas of the open-air ballparks.

Allergists also recommend carrying disinfectant wipes for surfaces and emergency epinephrine…. just in case.
