For parents of kids with allergies, it takes strategic planning to do some of the common family outings many families enjoy without thinking twice. The Charlotte Knights recognize this, and are making two upcoming games “Peanut-Controlled Games” so that young baseball fans who have peanut allergies can cheer on the home team.

On Wed., Aug. 6, the Charlotte Knights will host their first of two “Peanut-Controlled Games” at BB&T Ballpark. 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.

Gates open at 6 p.m. on Wed, Aug. 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 Sun., Aug. 24 at 5:05 p.m. at BB&T Ballpark as the Knights host the Norfolk Tides. For both games, the Knights welcome 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. For the least peanut-exposed path to the Power Alley sections, fans should enter BB&T Ballpark through the center field gate.

Tickets are $8 in advance and are available by phone at 704-357-8071, online at, or in person at the BB&T Ballpark Ticket Office. Fans ordering online should use promo code “peanutfree.”
