SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- It can be tough for families of children with severe peanut allergies to enjoy any kind of outing.
That's why the South Bend Silver Hawks tried to make it easier Sunday by hosting a peanut-free game.
Peanuts are the most prevalent allergen in children and millions of Americans suffer from it.
Dozens of kids and their families spent the game in the home plate suite with snacks that didn't contain any kind of peanut.
“We're not comfortable going to a baseball game when we're going to be sitting in the stadium with a bunch of peanuts crushed and shells, and having this in a secluded area is nice so it makes everyone feel safer,” said Erica Andert.
An allergy walk is scheduled for August 23 in Indianapolis. Click here for more information.
