John Dankosky of member station WNPR attends an "allergy free" baseball game in New Britain, Conn., hosted by the hometown Rock Cats. Cleaning crews make an extra effort to remove peanut shells from a no-food area along the third base line. Children with severe food allergies can get an allergic reaction just from smelling peanuts.
