Ballpark Peanuts, a Classic Summer Pleasure, Have Been Benched

Today, most of the 2.3 million pounds of in-shell peanuts consumed during a typical baseball season are languishing in cold storage, waiting — like the fans — for an opening day at the park that is unlikely to come. Baseball teams both minor and major are trying to find a way to schedule a season, but there will be no one in the stands to shell out $4 or $5 for a bag of peanuts.

I will gladly buy a ton (or even tonne) or two if they can be shipped to Australia. Nobody here seems to have discovered salting in the shell.
