“Peanut Free Night is one of our most important community events of the year,” said Storm Chasers President and General Manager Martie Cordaro. “Through the efforts of our ballpark operations staff led by Matt Owen, we are pleased to provide a safe environment for everyone who would otherwise not be able to attend a professional baseball game. All deserve to attend a game at Werner Park.”
