Home Plate Specials

June 09, 2002|RENEE VOGEL

For Stadium Way purists, ballpark fare means Dodger Dogs. Indeed, the hot dog is baseball's most popular fast food--about 26 million franks will be eaten at major league games this season. But with no disrespect to the Blue dog, baseball cuisine is becoming a whole new ballgame as parks add regional flavor to the lineup. Match these popular refreshments with their home kitchen:

1. Philadelphia Phillies at Veterans Stadium

2. Houston Astros at Astros Field

3. Cleveland Indians at Jacobs Field

4. Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium

5. New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium

6. Montreal Expos at Olympic Stadium

7. San Francisco Giants at Pacific Bell Park

8. Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field

9. Arizona Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark

10. Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field

A. Pierogies: Polish-style dumplings filled with potatoes and cheese.

B. Pretzels. Soft and doughy, with or without salt.

C. Big Macs. A major league McDonald's.

D. Bazurros: flat bread filled with specialty salads and lightly rolled.

E. Barbecue-smothered sandwiches and baked potatoes.

F. Hot Italian beef on a hoagie with au jus.

G. Burritos and tacos with carne asada.

H. Cheesesteak sandwiches.

I. Beaver tails: fried dough dipped in cinnamon and sugar.

J. Coffee drinks. This stadium has more than a dozen espresso machines capable of serving up thousands of lattes during a game.
