The MLB Diet

Stockbyte/ThinkStock

Loosen your belts and settle in baseball fans. The Major League Baseball season begins in full this week with a slate of games Monday on “Opening Day”. Of course the Dodgers and Diamondbacks have already played two regular season games in Australia over a week ago. Those games down under set the stage for a banner year in…concessions. The Aussie games, played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, featured a one-meter long hot dog that sold for $40. That’s three feet of lips and you-know-what in a bun.

Not to be outdone, American ballparks are set to roll out some curious new food items this year as well. The Ballpark at Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers, will debut bacon on a stick. Bacon. On a stick. $7. Need something to wash that down? How about a frozen beer? In honor of Rangers Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish, you can get yourself a frozen Kirin, the Japanese equivalent of Bud Light. Still hungry? How about the Choomongous? Named for Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo, this two-foot long hot dog is topped with spicy Asian beef and sells for $26. Beware, it’s likely coming out later as a Shin-Soo Poo. Finally, the D-Back’s Chase Field will sell a D-Bat Dog. That’s an 18-inch corn dog stuffed with cheddar cheese and jalapeños. Served with a side of fries for $25. Not sure what happened to “buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks” but enjoy the action, and the heartburn, at the old ball game.
