Tennessee Smokies stadium workers prepare for peanut free night

The Smokies prepare for another peanut-free event for fans to enjoy. The game is at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday

KODAK - The Tennessee Smokies will host a peanut-free night for Wednesday's game against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. 

This marks the stadium's sixth straight year for the event.

Workers scrub down the entire stadium to get rid of any trace of peanuts. Every food that contains peanuts will be sealed. 

The organization does this to give fans a chance to enjoy a ball game that they may not normally get to. 

Smokies employees said that it takes an extra 40 to 60  hours to get the ballpark ready, but it's all worth it to give fans the experience. 

First pitch is at Smokies Park at 7:00 p.m.
