Sounds prep for peanut free game tonight

NASHVILLE (AP) - While they may buy Cracker Jack at the Nashville Sounds ballpark, for at least one night there will be no peanuts.

The Sounds' staff has spent several days scrubbing nearly 10,000 seats at Greer Stadium in preparation for a "Peanut Free" game tonight.

After scrubbing down the park, Sounds General Manager Brad Tammen told WPLN in Nashville (http://bit.ly/1qwubie) no peanuts will be sold. Even products like Dippin' Dots will be removed because of their trace amounts of nut residue.

Tammen says even if there is an extra cost, it is worth it to allow fans who wouldn't normally attend a game because of allergies to make it to the ballpark.

This season marks the Sounds' second peanut-free night.
