Big news for baseball fans! For the first time, the Chicago White Sox are hosting a peanut-allergy friendly game. I just received the following notice from our local food allergy support group leader. There will be special seating provided; the entire park will not be "peanut-free" that day. Here is the complete info, provided by the White Sox:
