2017 Peanut Allergy-Friendly MLB Baseball Games

Here is a comprehensive list of all the peanut allergy-friendly MLB teams that are hosting peanut-allergy friendly games in the 2017 season.

Note that teams announce dates for peanut allergy-friendly games at different times. This post will be updated as announcements are made. TBD indicates that the team’s administration has not sent confirmation regarding the 2017 season.
