Craving huge French fries or a foot-long corndog? (You will be shortly!) The Traverse City Pit Spitters have tallied up the votes for the Fan Food Contest and released their menu for summer.
The winner of the Fan Food Contest was Stacy Hovorka from Muskegon, Michigan. Stacey’s winning menu idea: Triple Crown Nachos. Nacho Cheese Doritos are piled high with warm queso and shredded cheese, cherry barbeque, pulled pork and sour cream. Stacey won four tickets for her submission and she’ll be throwing out a first pitch at a game this season.
Fans can expect a full menu with a variety of items such as chicken fries, ballpark burgers, foot-long corn dogs, soft Bavarian pretzels with cheese, TC cherry burger, gyros, Moomers Ice Cream (including the signature Pit Spitters Swirl), mini cheesecakes from Underground Cheesecake Factory, cherry caramel corn and more. View the entire 2019 Pit Spitters concession menu.
The Pit Spitters have been working with a variety of local vendors including Great Lakes Potato Chips, Tolman’s Meats, The Cheese Lady and Short’s Brewing. “Food is an important part of coming to the ballpark and we want to provide fans a great culinary experience,“ says Pit Spitters Food and Beverage Manager Tyler Glynn. “We’re going to have great food at every game and as part of that, we feel it’s important to work with local vendors. Northern Michigan has a lot of great food companies and we’re proud to partner with them.”
There will be plenty of beverages options available at the park this season. Pepsi products will be served and for those 21+, there are a variety of Michigan and domestic beer options. A few of the craft beer options available this season include Short’s Local’s Light, Bell’s Two Hearted, Petoskey Brewing Horny Monk, Founders Centennial IPA, Bell’s Oberon, Mitten Triple Crown Brown and more.
Opening Day for the Traverse City Pit Spitters was Tuesday, May 28. The team topped the Green Bay Booyah with a 2-1 victory. Find the schedule and ticket information at pitspitters.com.
