    Atlanta Braves: The Burgerizza (photo above)
    One of many mind-boggling items on menus at Turner Field in its final season as the Braves’ home park, the Burgerizza includes a 20-ounce patty, five slices of cheddar and bacon on a bun made of two eight-inch pepperoni pizzas. Is it good? Probably. Pizza is great and bacon cheeseburgers are incredible. It doesn’t really seem like it lends itself to portability unless you’re willing to get your hands and face and shirt all covered with pepperoni grease, but hey, let’s not overthink this: It’s a burger made on pizza.

    One of several items developed by chef Andrew Zimmern to be served at Citizens Bank Park, Coors Field, Fenway Park, Kauffman Stadium, Minute Maid Park and PNC Park, the Korean Fried Pork Belly Sandwich is a battered and fried pork belly sandwich topped with grilled pineapple, gochujang sauce and chili lime salt. It makes this list not just because it’s battered and fried pork, but because it includes grilled pineapple — an underutilized sandwich ingredient that is perfect for adding tangy sweetness to a savory meal. Gochujang sauce is a spicy, fermented condiment made from pepper, rice and soybeans, and it’s quite good.

    I usually sneak in about ten Jim beam shooters and every so often buy a hot dog.

    Marlins’ new Miami Mex Taco Dog is a footlong frank with chili con carne, Monterey Jack cheese, cilantro shaved cabbage, jalapeno-lime aioli and fresh salsa. Literally all of those things are delicious. It’s also wrapped in a tortilla, which seems way better suited than a traditional hot-dog bun for containing all those toppings.

    It's pretty easy to drop 100.00 on beer at a game

    One important and too often overlooked quality of good ballpark food is portability: You want something you can eat while walking around, perhaps while fumbling with your phone to look up the minor league stats of the kid pitcher who’s mowing through your team’s lineup. The Tigers figured this out, and so they jammed their battered, fried bratwurst patty onto a stick. More foods should be served on sticks in general.

    Compared to most foods on this list, the Astros’ new chicken sandwich seems downright elegant and maybe even kind of healthy: It’s a grilled chicken breast with greek yogurt, baby spinach and sliced tomatoes on a homemade sweet-potato waffle. I think that might even count as paleo-friendly, but don’t quote me on that. What matters here is that it’s probably good, and the Astros deserve kudos for stretching our understanding of what constitutes a sandwich bun. Pretty much anything served on sweet potato waffles seems like it’s worth trying.

    Did you know that Cincinnati was once nicknamed “Porkopolis?” Why they didn’t adopt that as the city’s official name is beyond me. But the Reds are at least doing it justice with a bacon-wrapped hot dog topped with fried salami, pulled pork, queso blanco and pickles. “Meat Lover’s hot dog” is the best kind of redundancy.

    More food on sticks! The Rangers will serve up the Chicken and Donut Skewer, for when you want fried chicken and also donuts and you don’t want to have to touch either of them with your hands. It’s drizzled with what the description calls “sweet and sour buffalo honey sauce,” which is probably good, and sounds like it would go equally well with fried chicken and with donuts.

    New York Mets: Spicy Korean Fried Chicken sandwich...
    The crust is crispy and spicy and somehow smoky, the chicken inside is moist and delicious, and there are pickles on there so you can say you ate your vegetables.
