Fielder's Choice: 2014 Gluten-Free Guide to Major League Baseball Ballparks

Gluten-free options at Major League Baseball games aren't limited to peanuts and Cracker Jack. Most ballparks have improved from simply offering bunless franks and burgers, and many have dedicated gluten-free concession stands and carts.

Here's where you can find gluten-free concessions at each of the 30 MLB ballparks for the 2014 season (bookmark this post and check back throughout the season for updates; you can email me with any additions/changes that you find).

Once again teams are sponsoring Celiac Awareness Nights, with expanded gluten-free options available at many of those games. They include the Arizona Diamondbacks (May 17), Philadelphia Phillies (May 18), New York Mets (May 26), San Diego Padres (July 19), Chicago White Sox (Aug. 16) and New York Yankees (Sept. 20).
