DETROIT, Mich. (WILX) - It's 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 like the Detroit Tigers, 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.
The Tigers are offering Peanut Friendly Days April 20, May 19, and September 1.
Allergists also recommend carrying disinfectant wipes for surfaces and emergency epinephrine just in case.
