A minor league baseball team in Connecticut will be the first professional sports team to 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.

“While many teams throughout professional sports have peanut-free sections, and/or peanut-free games, the Yard Goats are the first to stop selling the common allergen completely at their home venue in order to create a safe environment for individuals with peanut and tree nut allergies,” said a team statement.
