BOWIE, Md. - The Bowie Baysox are getting ready for Food Allergy Awareness Night on Thursday, May 14. The team is taking the necessary precautions so that fans affected by food allergies, anaphylaxis and celiac disease can see the Baysox take on the Erie SeaWolves at 7:05 p.m.
The team is proud to work with the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, the University of Maryland School of Medicine's Center for Celiac Research, Allergy & Asthma Network: Mothers of Asthmatics and Johns Hopkins Children Center to offer two sections to fans with food allergies.
There will be a FOOD-FREE ZONE in the lower reserved section of Prince George's Stadium with an exclusive entrance on the third base concourse. The section will be cleaned extensively prior to the game and absolutely no food will be permitted in the section during the game. However, fans sitting in the food-free zone will be allowed to bring soda and bottled water into the section. Tickets in this zone will be $11.
In addition to the food-free zone, the Baysox are offering a GLUTEN-FREE SECTION. Seats in the gluten-free section will include a voucher for a hot dog on a gluten-free bun, chips, a regular size soft drink and a gluten-free cookie. Seats in the gluten-free section with the food voucher are $13.50.
To help protect fans, the Baysox will not sell peanuts on the third base concourse during the game. The team will also list every ingredient of every item sold on signs at each concession stand. The Baysox will also raise awareness for food allergies throughout the night with tables on the concourse level.
To purchase seats in the food-free zone or the gluten-free section, fans can contact Promotions Manager Chris Rogers at (301) 464-4855. To guarantee seating within the designated areas, seats must be purchased at least 48 hours before the game.
