Boy's letter leads to change at Miller Park


PEWAUKEE (WKOW)-- A young boy's letter leads to a big change at Miller Park.

Fifth grader Mathew Trotier and his classmates at Horizon Elementary School in Pewaukee got a visit from Bernie Brewer and the Racing Sausages.

They were there to announce that three games this season will have peanut free seats.

The change comes after Mathew wrote a letter to the team describing why he can't go to games because of his peanut allergy.

His father, Tim Trotier says, "Peanuts are ubiquitous whether its at a Brewers game a Bucks game a race on an airplane... a lot of people think ingesting a peanut is a problem. But for my kids even getting it on their skin can cause hives and welts."

The Brewers also gave Mathew a jersey and hat and tickets to one of the peanut-free games.
