Brewers unveil peanut-controlled area at Miller Park

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers announced it will offer peanut-controlled seating at Miller Park for three home games in the 2012 season. The seating is being set aside for those suffering from peanut allergies.

The idea for the peanut-controlled area came from Horizon Elementary School 6th Grade student Mathew Trotier. He wrote a letter to Milwaukee Brewers suggesting the creation of an area for children who suffer from peanut allergies.

After reviewing logistics, the Brewers surprised Trotier Tuesday, who suffers from the allergy, at his school by announcing the creation of a program that will accommodate approximately 100 people in a peanut-controlled area for three Brewers home games in 2012.

The three home games are Monday, May 7 against the Reds; Thursday, July 26 against the Nationals; and Friday, September 14 against the Mets.

The peanut-controlled seating will be in Club Outfield sections 306 and 307, and tickets will be $38 each.

Tickets are not yet on sale. Additional information related to the availability of the tickets and logistics related to the area will be announced in February.
