BALLPARK FOOD IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER

If the soundtrack to summer is the whack of a baseball bat, then the official food has to be hot dogs and pretzels. In case you haven’t heard, baseball season is officially back after the South Bend Cubs opener earlier this week at Four Winds Field. 

House foodie and community editor Marshall King was among the lucky ticket holders, trying chicken chips, hot dogs straight out of Fenway Park, and Ben’s Soft Pretzels

And as it turns out among Flavor 574 readers and baseball fans alike, classic foods reign supreme at the ballpark, according to previous Flavor 574 reporting. But some parks are getting creative with a nine-patty burger, chicken and waffle cone and more offerings. To see the full list, check out the story on Flavor 574.
