More than peanuts and Cracker Jacks: Salem Sox upgrade concession stands

Posted: Updated:

The Salem Red Sox say 2013 is the year of the fan -- and one of the biggest ways they're trying to improve the fan experience is a big upgrade in the food they serve at the ballpark.

Two brand new concession stands will be open on either side of the park for the 2013 season.  One called "Swine Drive Deli Dawgs" will serve 50 different kinds of hot dogs, as well as sandwiches, sausages, and other American fare.

A second stand called "Roman Umpire" will serve up pizza, chicken parmesan, and other kinds of Italian inspired food.

The Salem Sox are also teaming up with Blacksburg's "Bowl & Bones" this season, which will have a permanent food stand near the main gates.  They'll serve their famous wings and other select items from their menu.

Drink options are expanding too.

"We'll have milkshakes, which I'm very excited about this year," said Evan Lepler, Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations for the Salem Red Sox.  "I can't think of a much better drink on a warm, summer day than having a milkshake and enjoying a ball game."

The Salem Sox will play in their home opener Friday night at 7:05pm.  Tickets are available online or at Salem Memorial Ballpark.
