For the ninth year, the Boston Red Sox will welcome peanut allergic fans to Fenway Park this season, providing the opportunity for all fans to enjoy a day of baseball that's free from worry or danger. Accommodations for these games include appropriate “Peanut-Allergy Friendly” signs posted at the site location; prohibition of sales of any nut products on or near the right field terrace during the game; and an extra security, EMS, and a Fenway Park ambassador presence in the Cumberland Farms Deck throughout the game to troubleshoot questions and be of assistance in case an emergency arises. Peanut allergy families will receive a goody bag when entering the ballpark, and there will be a scoreboard message saying: “The Boston Red Sox Welcome Our Peanut-Allergy Families to Fenway Park.” As a special treat, Red Sox mascot Wally will visit the Cumberland Farms deck for a half-inning during the game. Additional accommodations will be made for fans with extremely severe allergies. Tickets must be purchased in advance of game day, and waivers must be signed to receive your tickets at the ballpark. Sat., June 8, 7:15 p.m.; Sat., July 20, 4:05 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 3, 7:10 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 31, 7:10 p.m. $50 per seat, $30 standing room only. Fenway Park, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston.
