MILWAUKEE (AP) — Anyone who’s sung “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” knows that peanuts and Cracker Jack are forever linked with baseball. But for fans with peanut allergies, a ballpark experience can be tough to navigate.
That’s a point that local sixth-grader Mathew Trotier made in a letter last month to the Milwaukee Brewers.
In response, the team said this week it will set aside a peanut-controlled area for three home games next season.
Team executive Rick Schlesinger says the team’s goal is to make Miller Park accessible to as many fans as possible.
The home games are May 7 against the Cincinnati Reds; July 26 against the Washington Nationals; and Sept. 14 against the New York Mets.
