Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Summer is here and baseball season is in full swing! For some, a night at the ballpark is all about taking in the game. For others, the focus is on the food and the delicious finds throughout the stadium. Food companies are making it easier, though, for consumers to bring tasty baseball fare into their homes.

For example, Los Angeles Dodgers fans and national food critics alike agree that Dodger Dogs are some of the best hot dogs in the nation. Once found only at Dodger Stadium, today, Dodger Dogs are available at grocery stores throughout Southern California thanks to food manufacturer Farmer John. In Minneapolis/St. Paul, pick up Twins Dogs – the official hot dog of the Minnesota Twins – at your local market from Schweigert Meats. Finally, Cloverdale proudly supplies the Mariner Dog to Seattle Mariners fans, both at Safeco Field and at local supermarkets.

Need to top your dog? Look no further than stadium mustard! Cleveland claims to have not one, but two brands of famous stadium mustard enjoyed by Indians fans across the state and throughout the country: Authentic Stadium Mustard and Bertman Ball Park Mustard.

What would America's pastime be without peanuts and Cracker Jack? It's Hampton Farms that provides roasted and salted nuts to your city's sporting venue. And just how did Cracker Jack (now owned by Frito-Lay) become synonymous with baseball? Check out this fun story for a complete historical explanation!

What about you? Leave a message and tell me about the baseball foods you love to chow down on at the stadium and in your home!
