Peanuts have been a staple at baseball games since the sport was created. This is fantastic for folks who love peanuts, but possibly deadly for those who have an allergy to them.Beginning May 28, the Kansas City Royals are taking steps toward mitigating the risks involved with peanut allergy sufferers attending games at Kauffman Stadium. This will be done by offering a private suite one game a month through September that promises to be free of peanut allergens.The Royals have apparently tried a similar effort in the past. However, this will mark the first time the club has designated a private suit.More on this story from KSHB:The suit has its own bathrooms and kitchen to ensure the guests don't have to walk through any open areas where peanuts would be prevalent. The Royals even have a designated cleaning crew and medical EMT that they'll staff specifically for the peanut-free suite.The cost is $55 per person which includes all food and beverages throughout the game. The Royals is requesting each family only purchase four tickets per group, so they can host at least five families, or 21 people per game in the peanut-free zone.Guests are also asked to sign a waiver.The article also states that the number of children who are allergic to peanuts has tripled over the last decade. So initiatives like this one are becoming increasingly vital for pro franchises to do.Via SportsbyBrooks
