Now THIS is ballpark food

Thanks to my cohort Mike Hlas for sending me this link. It’s pure minor league baseball.

The West Michigan Whitecaps of the Midwest League have concocted a new item for their food menu at Fifth Third Field this season. It’s called the Fifth Third Burger.

The Fifth Third Burger is 1.66 pounds of beef (five-thirds of a pound) and includes lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, chili and Fritos.

It’ll sell for $20, feeding one to four people. If one person manages to eat the entire Fifth Third Burger, he’ll be given a T-shirt to commemorate the event (and sure bellyache).

The Fifth Third Burger conains a whopping 4,889 calories. Yes, that 4,489 calories!!!!

Here’s a link to a story on the burger:*blog*&par=RSS

They left off the bacon. Amateurs.

In all seriosity, I used to live in Grand Rapids and attended many Whitecaps’ games. The food at Fifth Third was always very good, especially the pork chop sandwich.

$20 at DATPFAVMS would barely buy you a regular hamburger.
