Here's what's cooking at Fifth Third Field
TOLEDO, Ohio (WNWO) - If you’re not going for the game, or to hang out in Hensville, there’s only one other thing you’re at Fifth Third Field for.
“People love to come to the ball game for the food they get to try,” said Andi Roman, communications director for the Toledo Mud Hens.
Nothing says opening day like some good old-fashioned ballpark food.
“We have about 400 employees throughout the whole campus, food and beverage employees,” said Corey Pleasant, the assistant director of food and beverage at Fifth Third Field.
Like peanuts and cracker jacks, Fifth Third Field has some fan favorites.
“Hot dogs and beer are always top of the list,” said Roman.
The stadium is also home to some tasty Mud Hens originals.
“We have the muddy dog,” said Pleasant. “Our funnel cake stand with a maple bacon funnel cake.”
They even add some twists to the typical ballpark menu.
“Another huge item is our macaroni and cheese dog,” said Pleasant.
Pleasant said the top seller is typically no surprise. They go through about 700 pretzels a game! Fifth Third Field is home to many restaurants and unique stands.
“We have eight concourse restaurants and some specialty food carts,” said Roman.
Aside from all that’s inside the stadium, Holy Toledo Tavern and Fleetwood’s Tap Room are connected to the ballpark as well.
