When I visited the Baseball as America exhibit at the Museum of Science in Boston recently, there were two quotes featured in the exhibit which struck me. From a video clip of Humphrey Bogart, "A hotdog at the game beats roastbeef at the Ritz. You see nice people. You yell for your guys. Good for your lungs. Gives you a lift, and nobody calls the cops." And printed on the wall, there is Jacques Barzun's familiar quote "To understand America, one must understand baseball..."
It is so significant that food allergy support groups, individual advocates, moms, dads, food allergy friendly businesses and baseball clubs have made an effort to accommodate peanut and tree nut allergic fans. Baseball is a big part of our culture. Opening day is equivalent to the beginning of summer. So, I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has made it possible for these "peanut-free" games, zones, and skyboxes to occur. If you notice anyone missing from my list, please let me know! Likewise, if you prefer not to be included in the list, let me know and I will remove your name right away. Thanks for making things a little more food allergy friendly:
