KODAK, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Smokies have scrubbed their ball park and kick off a home stand Thursday with a peanut-free night.

The game against the Huntsville Stars is being played for the Allergy, Asthma & Sinus Center. It's intended to allow fans who have peanut allergies to safely and comfortably enjoy a baseball game.

The first pitch is at 7:15 p.m. Fans 12 and under also get a hot dog meal with paid admission.

The Smokies are a Double-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. Their stadium is in Kodak, east of Knoxville.
