The Winchester Royals of the Valley Baseball League made the difficult but necessary decision to ban sunflower seeds and peanuts from Bridgeforth Field.

The concessions stand removed those products and fans cannot bring their own.

The team made the decision to stay compliant in their agreement with Shenandoah University to use the newly renovated stadium and turf field.

SU had asked the Royals to keep the field in the same or better condition from when they started the season which includes keeping the surface clean of any peanut or sunflower seed shells.

Those shells can burrow into the surface over time and cause issues with the drainage system and lead to the growth of mold.
