CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – You can enjoy a peanut-free night at the Riverdogs thanks to a local allergy and asthma group.
On Wednesday, May 15th, the Charleston Riverdogs will host its fourth peanut-free night so those who suffer from the allergy will have the opportunity to attend a baseball game without worrying about the hazard.
Charleston Allergy and Asthma will host the special night.
“We know that it can be wearisome for people with peanut allergies to attend baseball games. Even slight accidental exposure could lead to life-threatening allergic reactions,” said Dr. Jeffrey Dietrich, a board-certified allergist with Charleston Allergy and Asthma. “That’s why we’re so excited to host this peanut-free night for the fourth year in a row. It allows our friends with peanut allergies to be able to experience the joy of America’s favorite pastime in a safe environment.”
In preparation for the peanut-free night, the entire Charleston Riverdogs stadium will be thoroughly cleaned and pressure-washed prior to the game to remove any peanut residue to ensure a safe environment for attendees with peanut allergies.
There will also be peanut-free refreshments, games and giveaways for attendees.
