Silver Hawks host a peanut-free zone


Everyone loves a good baseball game on a summer day, but for people with peanut allergies, baseball stadiums can be deadly.

That's why the South Bend Silver Hawks planned a special event just for those who fight the allergy. In honor of Food Allergy Awareness Week, they provided a peanut free area in the Home Plate Suite and getting the suite peanut free wasn't an easy task.

"We spent about two hours wiping down every surface, counters, walls, tables, chairs, you name it, we went through and wiped it down, just to make sure because it's a very serious thing with someone with peanut allergies so we just wanted to make sure they were safe," says Joe Hart, team president. 

Around 45 spectators took advantage of the peanut free zone and many were attending their first ever Silver Hawks game.
