New food items at Progressive Field
Hey Clevelanders! I know you’re already anxious to get to the ballpark this summer, but these menu additions sure can’t hurt:
- The concession stands at sections 184 and 530 have an onion bar for topping your hot dogs: yellow, white, red and Vidalia onions; onion relish; and onion hot sauce.
- A “chefs table kiosk” at section 171 will feature a different creation each day, made by one of the ballpark chefs.
- “Spuds and suds” at section 541 includes veggie dogs, veggie Italian sausage, gluten free snacks, and twisted potato chips.
- A Food Network hot dog and sausage bar at section 157 has a huge array of toppings choices: sauerkraut, smoky baked beans, Fritos, fried onions, smoky-sweet jalapeno relish, bacon chunks, grilled onion and peppers, cole slaw or pulled pork.
- The stands at sections 121, 154, 163, and 550 will sell the new Food Network buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese.
- Pulled pork sliders and Cleveland Bomber sliders (shaved beef sautéed and topped with provolone cheese) will be available at section 184 and come with homemade kettle chips.
The coming weeks will determine the future of Heredia’s contract with Cleveland, and perhaps about the history of his arrangement with the real Fausto Carmona. We can’t know, because he’ll likely never tell us, the extent to which Heredia’s decade under false pretenses amplified the paranoia of a man already prone to fantastic crises of confidence, or had something to do with his wild, cruel swings of professional fortune. If Heredia is to be blamed for swindling his employers, he is also to be pitied for enduring a working life that long ago left his hand and took on a consuming path of its own.
I DISCOVERED THE PROBLEM
Since July, the Indians’ record in the final game of a series is 3-13. In every other game, they’re 24-17.
This article isn’t to pick on the Browns, but it’s to question why a preseason game should captivate more Cleveland fans than a mid-August game between first and second place teams.
