Baseball’s Best Burger


Thanks to a post on Bus Leagues Baseball I see that the show Man vs. Food will be visiting three Minor League parks tonight. Two of the three parks I have been to. I have visited Fifth Third Field in Michigan, but I have not tried their monster burger yet. I have however tried the Baseball’s Best Burger at GCS Ballpark in Sauget, IL. When I made my initial visit to the stadium this August I met a very nice woman who worked at the stadium and suggested some things for me to see and do around the stadium. Most of those suggestions I will talk about more in my stadium guide that is way overdue. The one thing that she told me about that shocked me was this burger. She said it was baseball’s best burger, but what does that mean? What makes it so much better? She said it was a bacon cheeseburger (that is normal) with a Krispy Kreme bun (come again?). From the minute she told me about it I was intrigued. I even went to the one stand in the stadium that makes them (in left field if you get the chance) to get a look at it. They told me that the only way that I could see one is if I bought it. I made a quick call to check if my insurance was up to date, and I ordered the burger. I also asked if they knew CPR before I started this thing. It did not sound good so I told myself that I would just have a couple of bites before getting some real food. I went to a seat (I think you must sit down to eat the burger), and unwrapped the delicacy. It really looked like something that could kill me. I snapped a quick picture in case the people at the hospital would need to now the cause of death. I took my first bite half expecting to go into a diabetic coma. When the food hit my taste buds I knew that I would eat the whole thing. A couple of bites into the burger my fingers were covered in the glaze/grease from the burger, but that did not slow me down. I had the thing down in seconds. I was going to take a picture of the burger a couple of bites in, but I decided that I wanted to use my phone again so I decided the one picture would be enough. I finished the burger quickly, and debated having another. As much as I made this burger sound like it could kill you I am alive exactly a month later with no real side effects. The only real difference that I have found is my desire to see more games at GCS Ballpark. I would not eat these everyday, but I would find a way to get the occasional one down. So I will skip the usual if you are in the area, and go with the if you are within a two state radius try this thing. The people at the stadium are great and will guide you in the right direction.
