It’s opening day for Major League Baseball. Don’t strike out with your food choices at the baseball game. We tracked down some of the best bites at ballparks from coast to coast, including creative and classic finds you could eat, along with the great options you should eat.
Batter up! The 2013 Major League Baseball season opens tonight with the Texas Rangers at the Houston Astros. Long before the seats get filled, though, the concession stands will be busy getting ready for crowds that will consume countless hot dogs, hamburgers, and even macaroni and cheese. If you find yourself in stadiums in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, Minnesota, San Diego, St. Louis or Texas this season, you’ll want to check out Food Network’s stands.
New home-run offerings include Red Hot Burgers, mac and cheese carts, tacos, quesadilla carts and sandwich stands.
Back this season in Cincinnati and St. Louis are the custom hot dog bars: Satisfy your craving for all-American classic ballpark fare with a quarter-pound hot dog served on a potato roll. And it doesn’t stop there. Top your dog with the basics: barbecue sauce, ketchup, mustard, relish and sauerkraut. Plus, choose from Food Network favorites: bacon chunks, fried onions, corn chips, griddled onions and peppers, shredded cheddar, smoky baked beans and a smoky-sweet jalapeno relish.

Batter up! The 2012 Major League Baseball season opened last night with the christening of the new Marlins Ballpark. The Cardinals and Miami Marlins battled it out at the 37,000-seat venue, which features a retractable roof and a view of downtown Miami — one of the reasons for the 2012 Marlins name change.
The Marlins name isn’t the only thing changing this season: Food Network and Delaware North Companies Sportservice are ushering in the start of MLB with a customizable hot dog bar, A Topping for Every Taste.
America’s favorite pastime has been known, unfortunately, for some of America’s worst food. To enjoy a game meant to overpay for stale pretzels, beer and hot dogs, and, if you’re lucky, some frozen pizza.
Those days are over. Food Network and partner Delaware North Companies are stepping up to the plate to serve Food Network Signature Sandwiches at 9 baseball stadiums across the country. The chefs in the Food Network Kitchens worked tirelessly (during spring training) to create a Signature Steak Sandwich, plus a locally-inspired sandwich for each stadium — 8 steak ‘wiches and one sausage with local twists.
