NYC Subway Series: Red Rooster at Yankee Stadium

By Marcus Samuelsson | June 11, 2012

Summertime without baseball in America is like the summer without lemonade. And although I’m more of a soccer buff than a baseball fan, I highly admire the sport so I was thrilled to visit Yankee Stadium this past Saturday. I went to serve up some Red Rooster baseball food for part of MasterCard’s Priceless NY program. We set up shop in the new Yankee Stadium’s Batter’s Eye Café with some Red Rooster versions of baseball sliders– shredded lamb with mint yogurt, Berbere chicken with coleslaw and Swedish meatball sliders, as well as our famous sweet potato donuts.

For many Americans, yesterday marked the unofficial start of spring. To celebrate Opening Day of the 2012 Major League Baseball season, we showcased some of the more unique food items in the Bigs, from the regionally beloved to the “just, plain weird.” However, because not every team played yesterday, certain teams will be celebrating their Opening Days today instead.  As a result, we will step up to the plate again, with more of the best concessions the MLB has to offer!

Four-Person Hot Dogs and Other Unique MLB Foods, Part I

For many Americans, today marks the unofficial start of spring.  Unofficial because to baseball enthusiasts, Opening Day of Major League Baseball is really when the fun begins.  (If you are an Oakland Athletics or Seattle Mariners fan who forgot to wake up for the two games in Japan, your season has already started.  In fact, your team is 1-1 with 160 games to go.)

While most teams use Opening Day to debut the newest free agent acquisition or the prized rookie from Spring Training, ballparks will occasionally debut new food items.  The most hyped concession of the upcoming season is, without a doubt, the one-pound, two-foot-long, four-person “Champion Dog.”  Topped with Texas chili, shredded cheddar cheese, and sauteed onions, this $26 tube-steak, served on a wooden cutting board, is already the talk of the town at the Ballpark in Arlington–home of the Texas Rangers.

Since peanuts and Cracker Jack have become ubiquitous cliches (although participating in the seventh-inning stretch over “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” will never feel passe), and because most people won’t be able to get to Texas to try the Champion Dog, let alone form a foursome to tackle it, it begs the question: What are the best and/or most unique eats among Major League stadia?

Here’s a list of unique eats available while watching this all-American sport… Read More
