Wow, that's awful SL.  I have to say I rarely even see peanuts anymore at Citifield.  I think they've upped their food game there so much that there are far better choices, LOL.

I made sure I told them about the person throwing peanuts. That is not allowed and the person working that section should have stopped it. I have only once seen anyone throwing food before and they were stopped immediately. They were given one warning and told if they did it again they would be escorted out.

I am not interested in the employee getting in trouble. I want them informed what was going on and retrained.

We usually go to 3-6 games a year. The last time we had to move seats was at least 4 years ago. But that time there was an empty section near us so we just moved.

And last year as we were leaving a game I walked through a pile of shells and started reacting. Once I got away and had a drink of water it stopped. I only looked down after I started reacting, so I know it wasnít just in my head. (For me, that is a legitimate question...is it a real reaction or is it all in my head.)

It probably took about 3 innings before I stopped shaking though.

The first employee I spoke to, the one who should have stopped the guy throwing them in the first place, actually told me they do have peanut free sections and why didnít I just buy them. I just looked at her and she took a step back, away from me. Pretty sure there were flames shooting out my eyes. I told her:

  • it limits what games I can attend
  • it is always more expensive
  • the seats always sell out quickly
  • peanuts isnít the only allergy people deal with
  • nobody should be throwing food around anyway
