A minor league baseball team in Connecticut will ban peanuts from their park in an effort to accommodate fans with allergies, the team announced.

While announcing their promotion schedule for the 2019 season on Wednesday, the Hartford Yard Goats said that peanuts would no longer be sold at Dunkin’ Donuts Park. That means stadium staple Cracker Jack is off the menu board, too.
