The Omaha Storm Chasers will host “Peanut Free Night” on Monday, May 23rd. This event, in association with the Asthma and Allergy Center, allows fans with peanut allergies to attend a Storm Chasers game worry free.
Werner Park will not serve any peanuts or tree nuts in honor of the event. The ballpark will be thoroughly cleaned in order to provide a safe environment for those with nut allergies.
“Peanut Free Night has been one of our most unique community events,” said Storm Chasers President and General Manager Martie Cordaro via press release. “Our ballpark operations staff, led by Matt Owen, work tirelessly to ensure that Werner Park is safe for everyone who otherwise would not be able to attend a professional baseball game.”
First pitch for the “Peanut Free Night” game against the Albuquerque Isotopes is set for 6:35 at Werner Park. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for that night are available and can still be purchased at www.omahastormchasers.com/tickets.
“The Asthma and Allergy Center is proud to sponsor Peanut Free night at Werner Park for the third year and happy to see all the families with peanut allergy able to experience a professional baseball game in a peanut-free environment. Parents have told us how much they appreciate this opportunity to have their children experience one of America's past-times,” said Dr. Linda Ford the founder and president of The Asthma and Allergy Center. “Peanut Free night gives us and Midwest Allergy Clinic a chance to raise awareness about food allergy and for our patients to learn about new products, research and education. The Asthma & Allergy Center and Midwest Allergy Clinic are proud to be sponsors of Peanut Free Night and to help provide this night of baseball for all the community. "
