Ballpark bans "peanuts and Cracker Jacks"Posted: Updated:
You won't be able to buy any "peanuts and Cracker Jacks" at one ballpark in Connecticut this summer.
The Hartford Yard Goats will no longer allow the snacks at their ballpark.
The park is the first pro-sports venue in the nation to ban peanuts.
Officials say it's because parents of allergic children say that if their kids even step on peanut shells they can go into anaphylactic shock.
The team's president says "we want this ballpark to be everyone's ballpark."
