(Uptown Charlotte, NC) - On Wednesday, August 6, the Charlotte Knights will host their first of two "Peanut-Controlled Games" at BB&T Ballpark this season. Fans with peanut allergies will be able cheer on the Knights in the team's "Peanut-Controlled Zone" where sales of peanuts will be halted in that section and fans will not be allowed to consume peanut products in that area.
"We wanted to make sure that those with peanut allergies have their chance to enjoy a game at BB&T Ballpark this season," said Knights COO Dan Rajkowski. "Our hope is that these two games will provide those fans and families with peanut allergies a chance for a safe and enjoyable game in Uptown Charlotte."
Gates open at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 6 as the Knights host the Gwinnett Braves (Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves) in a 7:05 p.m. game. The second of the two games will take place on Sunday, August 24 at 5:05 p.m. at BB&T Ballpark as the Knights host the Norfolk Tides (Triple-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles). Gates open at 4:00 p.m. on August 24.
For both games, the Knights will welcome all fans with peanut allergies in Power Alley sections 124-126 for a great night of baseball. Signage will be present to alert other fans that the area is a "Peanut-Controlled Zone" and no peanuts will be consumed in that area for the duration of the day.
