New Baseball Chow Hits Home Run With Fans

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hot dogs and beer are still No. 1 staples in a baseball fan’s diet, but ballpark chow hounds can now sample “saucy street tacos,” deep fried apples and turkey legs too.

Trying to mirror fans’ ever-growing tastes, concession stands at the 30 major league ballparks are constantly adding new things to their menu.

For instance, new this year at the Milwaukee Brewers’s stadium is the Cheese Grillwurst – a cheese-filled bratwurst – while milkshakes were added to the menu at Comerica Park in Detroit.

In addition, chicken nuggets are now being offered to patrons to the Chicago White Sox’s stadium and Griddle Sausages are available to San Diego Padres fans at Petco Park.

Still, wieners and suds continue to hit home runs with fans.

According to Sportservice, a concession food service that operates at eight of the ballparks, more than 170,000 hot dogs and 310,000 cups of beer are expected to be sold by Sportservice during the opening week of the season.
