ARLINGTON, Texas — New season, new expectations, new toys and new food.
“New” was the word over at Globe Life Park in Arlington Thursday. Talk of the video board, 34 feet tall and about 100 feet wide, that now sits in left field led off the day’s events, but it wasn’t long before the food menu was up to bat.
With options like cotton candy covered hot dogs, Rocky Road bread pudding and the Big Tex Club, the cuisine couldn’t help but be a hit.
There’s even a dish called the Homerun Burger, which sports four all beef patties — sounds more like a Grand Slam to us.
But it wasn’t just about the new menu but new faces as the rangers welcomed Dallas native and former horned frog Bryan Holaday who they acquired in a trade with the Tigers.
Bryan’s glad to be back home, “Every Wednesday when they’d do Dollar Hot Dog Day, we’d come up here and see who can eat the most, so it was a lot of fun.”
Hey, maybe it’s all about the food after all. The Rangers hope to give fans more to cheer for than full stomachs when they host the mariners on Opening Day Monday.
It’s almost time to play ball!
