Depending on the city, seats run between 28 and 50 dollars. However, the monstrous amount of food fans are invited to consume is well worth the money, despite the less than desirable seat locations. Hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, pretzels and some sodas are included in the price; the stomach ache and piles of hot dog wrappers is complimentary.
The promotion seems to be appealing to college age males more than anyone. On the other hand, some older crowds steer clear of the uncontrollable feast. One journalist described the experience after a game in Los Angeles as ”A gluttonous orgy of stupidity.” Then went on to compare the smell of discarded stadium food wrappers and scraps to “sitting in a sewer.”
So if you are a health conscious individual you may want to stick to the usual seating options, but if you enjoy copious amounts of food shared over a rousing baseball game, check out these seats! Unfortunately the souvenir mugs and jerseys are still going to cost you a pretty penny, but the memory of 24 hot dogs in a 3 hour sitting will last a lifetime.
