Across North America, there are 15 different American League ballparks. Each park has their own unique concessions that represent that region. Here are the concessions at every AL ballpark that deserve a try (without any ranking).
Baltimore Orioles (Oriole Park at Camden Yards): Chesapeake Fries
Being the crab capital of the world, this concession is guaranteed to be local. It’s simply waffle fries topped with crab dip and Old Bay seasoning, what can go wrong?
Boston Red Sox (Fenway Park): Fenway Frank
The staple of Fenway concessions is the Fenway Frank. This dog is boiled and grilled (which makes all the difference) and laid to rest nicely in a tasty buttered roll.
Chicago White Sox (Guaranteed Rate Field): Southside Mini Donuts
A concession similar to a churro, but condensed, these mini donuts possess all of the powdered sugar and cinnamon that a normal churro would have.
Cleveland Indians (Progressive Field): Slider Dog
Get ready for this concession. This author’s favorite is a hot dog loaded with the sweet taste of Froot Loops, savory mac and cheese, and salty bacon bits. Your palette will explode in happiness after you try this delicious dog.
Detroit Tigers (Comerica Park): Little Caesars Cheese Bread
Detroit and Little Caesars go hand in hand. This concession is appropriately from this chain and will be sure to melt in your mouth. In an individual box, there are 6 giant slices of bread with cheese on top of it and it is absolutely delicious.
Houston Astros (Minute Maid Park): Prime Rib Sandwich
This protein packed sandwich contains a thick cut of prime rib, covered with caramelized onions and horseradish sauce. Although it will take up a ton of precious stomach space, it will most certainly be worth it.
Kansas City Royals (Kauffman Stadium): Steak and Cheese Dog
No, we are not in Philadelphia yet. This hot dog is drenched in steak and cheese sauce, as well as red peppers. Although quite basic, this dog is an underrated eat when at Kauffman.
Los Angeles Angels (Angel Stadium): Big A Burger Meal
Arguably the best burger in baseball is the Big A Burger. This meal contains a burger with two delicious patties, american cheese, and special sauce as well as a large container of fries and a milkshake to wash it all down.
Minnesota Twins (Target Field): Deep Fried Pickle Chips
Let’s be honest here, anything that is deep fried has to taste good! This treat is guaranteed to melt in your mouth even in chilly Minneapolis.
New York Yankees (Yankee Stadium): Yankee Stadium Gourmet Milkshakes
These over the top milkshakes are a perfect concession to drink in the Bronx. The milkshakes change seasonally and usually contain some sort of candy, cookie, cotton candy, or even a Popsicle on top!
Oakland Athletics (Oakland Coliseum): Tenders Love, and Chicken
This concession is arguably the best chicken tenders in all of baseball. If the savory chicken tenders aren’t tasty enough, there’s a whole topping bar with around 20 different sauces to try with it!
Seattle Mariners (T-Mobile Park): Roasted Corn on the Cob
Located at an internationally renowned sandwich stand in Paseo, this concession is a hit. The piece of corn is drenched in aioli, Parmesan cheese, cilantro, and paprika.
Tampa Bay Rays (Tropicana Field): Cuban Burger
The Cuban Burger is a twist on the classic Cuban sandwich. Two meat patties are buried under ham, salami, Swiss cheese, mustard and pickles all on toasted Cuban bread.
Texas Rangers (Globe Life Park (old)): Right Field Bacon Bombs
Although the new Globe Life Park has not opened yet, the previous one had a noteworthy concession in the Bacon Bombs. This concession contains provolone cheese wrapped in bacon, which is then deep fried and served with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce.
Toronto Blue Jays (Rogers Center): Dessert Poutine
The renowned Canadian snack comes with a twist. Instead of fries covered in gravy and cheese, this treat substitutes the fries with churros, cheese with vanilla ice cream and the gravy with caramel sauce.
