Rangers Succeed on the Field (and in the Belly)

“Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks… “

As the Rangers open up their season against the Seattle Mariners, everyone seems to be talking about whether or not the team can follow up from their impressive (and surprising) 2015 season. The Rangers definitely attracted more fans to their games, but they also attracted a new fan base: food connoisseurs.

Globe Life Park recently added a few gut-busters to their 2016 menu, which include a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Hot Dog and a $27 Wicked Pig sandwich that’s stuffed with pulled pork, bacon, sausage, prosciutto, ham, barbeque sauce, coleslaw, and pork rinds. Casey Rapp, General Manager of Delaware North Sportservice at Globe Life Park recently said his goal was to be “wacky,” and that may as well be an understatement.

While the following items sound absolutely mouth-watering, the Rangers unveiled a new vegan cart that’s sure to please those watching their weight. Items on the cart include vegan hot dogs, meatless nachos, black bean burgers and organic beer. These items still provide the ballpark feel, but without the calories.

The Rangers absolutely kill the food game, and it’ll be interesting to see how their on field play pans out this season. Maybe there’s a correlation between food quality and team quality…
