New Food at the Ballpark
Get your taste buds ready! Lots of new and unique food items are coming to U.S. Cellular Field for the 2012 season. The White Sox are adding to an already great ballpark menu by bringing an even larger variety of fresh and exciting foods to the ballpark. Don’t worry – your signature favorites will still be there.
Here are a few of the new menu items fans can enjoy at the 100- and 500-level, courtesy of Sportservice:
The Balkan Dog. A favorite in Eastern Europe, this combination of pork, beef and lamb (Cevapcici) will be serviced with diced white onions and a zesty red pepper and eggplant sauce on pita bread. A great alternative to the traditional ballpark dog.
DaBurger Double Play. Offered at the Burger Barn and topped with cheddar, bacon, BBQ sauce and caramelized onions, or for a different spin topped with produce and your choice of condiments. Either way, it is guaranteed to be delicious. The Burger Barn also offers the “Juicy Lucy” stuffed with bacon and cheddar or jalapeno and cream cheese.
Fans sitting in the Club Level can look forward to even more mouth-watering options thanks to Levy Restaurants. Check out Meatball Mania, a new spin on an old favorite. A skewer of six meatballs styled in traditional beef with marinara, chicken meatballs with green chile verde, or thai pork with ginger-soy barbecue. There’s no wrong way to go.
Dozens of other new menu items include a Vienna hot dog with pastrami bacon, a kelly green souvenir helmet full of French fries covered in delicious toppings, a vegan sloppy joe dubbed the “Sloppy Jane” and many more.
And for those folks concerned about nutritional values, we have plenty of healthy options as well. There are turkey burgers, veggie dogs, garden burgers, vegetarian taco salads, corn off the cob and fresh fruit cups.

I don’t know about you, but I’m starving.
New Fan-Produced Television Commercial – “Moments”
The newest White Sox television commercial, “Moments,” was created by a duo of native Chicagoans and lifelong White Sox fans Matt Dahl and Derek Smith. The spot was selected by the White Sox as one of four winning submissions, from nearly 300 spots, for the team’s 2012 advertising campaign.
Fans were asked to create 30-second TV spots supporting the White Sox campaign, “White Sox Baseball. Appreciate the Game.” These commercials were submitted through Poptent, an online community of thousands of creative video producers looking to have their ideas and work adopted by major brands and high-profile organizations.
The three remaining chosen submissions will be announced later this spring, after the much-anticipated home opener vs. Detroit on Friday, April 13.
Dahl and Smith, along with the creators of the three other selected spots, will each receive $7,500 for their efforts.
If you have not seen the new spot, here you go, MOMENTS.
