Let’s talk ballpark food

The dining options available at the ballpark have come a long way from hot dogs and peanuts. Nowadays fans expect some culinary invention while taking in a baseball game, and soon they’ll be able able to make a difference while enjoying a meal at the ballpark. MasterCard and Stand Up To Cancer are launching a Dig In & Do Good program that will see proceeds from food purchases go toward funding cancer research.

So the next time you sink your teeth into a Pat LaFrieda’s Filet Mignon Steak Sandwich or some Chicago’s Greektown Gyro Nachos, you could be helping in the fight against cancer. With ever-expanding menus offering unique creations at stadiums throughout baseball and MLB.com Bloggers sharing their favorites, there’s something for every palate.

We want to hear from you. Have you eaten something at the ballpark that surprised you or blew your mind? Blog about it and don’t forget to include photos and tag your post #DoGood. Then leave the link to your post here, and we’ll highlight your food posts in a panel on the MLB.com Blogs front page.

Tell us your favorite spots to eat and #DoGood around your ballpark!


It’s been quite awhile but, I’ll never forget Dodger Dogs. Sitting in Dodger Stadium watching Koufax or, Drysdale on the mound. Great memories but, don’t know if I’ve really got basis for a post. Besides, long removed from So. Cal., I have since become an ardent Cubs fan.

The Fifth-Third Burger at the West Michigan Whitecaps, and the Homewrecker Hotdog at the Charleston RiverDogs. Yummy…

Dodger Stadium has been serving up specialty Dodger Dogs based on certain opponents. Just recently had a Philly Dog ( Phillies ), a Super Dodger Dog with Philly Cheesesteak, sauteed onions and whiz. I’d like to see the Dodgers add more specialty dogs as well.

It’s Always a Good Dre in L.A.

I’m a traditionalist. I love a cold beer and peanuts. Don’t forget the nachos with cheese dip!

No trip to Kansas City or Kauffman Stadium is complete without some barbecue! Check out the must-have barbecue options at Kauffman Stadium:

Ciao Mark! I don’t have any ballpark food specific posts (yet) but I did do a series on saving money at the parks and included value food items for folks looking to cut back costs and still chow down at the park- http://ballparksonabudget.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/save-at-the-ballpark-nl-west-teams/

That link is the final post and includes links at the bottom to the other divisions. I also did a few budget guide to ballparks posts and they included some food options as well- http://ballparksonabudget.wordpress.com/2013/05/22/budget-guide-to-safeco-field/

As for me, I’m pretty low maintenance and just enjoy a soft pretzel and hot dog when I’m at the park. Loved the Chicago Dog I had at Wrigley… delicious! http://www.flickr.com/photos/74127742@N08/7294399682

Hope any of that helps! My Best! -Alicia
