Having a peanut allergy makes it difficult to be taken out to the ball game.

Walking past a vendor selling peanuts or sitting near someone chowing down on the legumes is almost inevitable.

There’s good news, though, if you’re a fan of the Colorado Rockies with an allergy to peanuts. On Friday, May 5, the team is peanut-proofing one suite at Coors Field.

Anyone who wishes to watch the Rockies take on the Arizona Diamondbacks from the peanut-free suite can pay $35 and submit a waiver, which can be downloaded here.

The Rockies note that peanuts will still be sold in other parts of the ballpark, so fans with peanut allergies should still take the precautions they do in other public places. More information about the event and how to submit the waiver is available here.
