Peanuts were banned last Sunday from an entire 226-person section of the ballpark for the second time this season as part of a growing effort to accommodate fans with allergies. From ivy-covered Wrigley Field to the new Nationals Park in Washington, nearly half of Major League Baseball teams set aside seats for at least one game without peanuts and Cracker Jack — which also contains peanuts.

Ha! I was just gonna post that too. WAY TO GO RED SOX! :thumbsup

“He wants to do what all the other kids are doing,’’ said his mother, April Maloney of Lexington. “He can go to school tomorrow and tell everybody, I went to a Red Sox game.’’

But for fans like Brian Gannon, 37, peanuts are as a much a part of the baseball ritual as beer and foul balls. They stuff their pants pockets with peanuts before games or, as Gannon did last week, stop by a supermarket for a “small’’ 48-ounce bag on the way to the ballpark.
This will raise a lot of awareness on the "peanut" front. :goodidea

The metal deck and rails around the seats were power-washed and she meticulously reviewed the concession menu to eliminate not just Cracker Jacks and peanuts, but any ingredient that may contain nuts.
