ST. LOUIS, Miss., May 29 (UPI) -- Peanuts and cracker jack may soon not be part of the old ballgame at St. Louis area ballparks.

Fans with allergies are being offered their own peanut-free seating at T.R. Hughes Ballpark in O'Fallon, Mo., home of the River City Rascals. And for the evening of July 21, Busch Stadium's Section 328 will go peanut-free, allowing allergic Cardinals fans to watch a game without worrying that peanuts will cause a reaction, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Thursday.

Crazy...I suffer from anxiety and feel claustrophobic at times. When I go to the annual Cubs@Dodgers games here in L.A. I always feel overwhelmed with anxiety...Can I get a whole section to myself?

Yeah, cute, like peanut allergies are just another phobia or something. People who don't have to live with it day to day have no idea how serious it is and how even casual contact with it can be serious and even deadly. My wife was touched by a family member who had dough on her hands from making peanut butter cookies. That was enough to send her to the hospital. Just being in the same room with an open jar of peanut butter is enough to nauseate her. So if you just have to have peanuts, sit in the 95% of the park where you can get them. But don't trivialize a condition that is life-or-death for some people.

I wonder why peanut allergies are so much more common than they used to be? You never heard about widespread peanut allergies 15-20 years ago....now, just like autism and ADHD, it seems to have spread like wildfire all of a sudden.

My allergy theory is this....children are not exposed to anything anymore. Pregnant women are given mile long lists of things they cannot consume while pregant. Children arrive these days with no exposure and therefore develop allergies to tons of stuff and come down with colds and viruses every other week. I never remember any kids with peanut allergies when I was growing up, now it's rampant. As far ADHA, I think doctors are way to quick to put a label on something and prescribe a drug. Just my opinion.

I agree.

I noticed you're from Warren County, NJ...isn't that where Hot Dog Johnny's is? I'm getting hungry just thinking about that place.
