Pit Spitters Fan Food Vote Features Bizarre Options

Have you ever had a hotdog smothered in bacon, mac ‘n cheese and Froot Loops? Well now it could be a possibility as the Traverse City Pit Spitters has a chance to add it to the menu.

The fourth-annual fan food voting is underway. This year’s finalists look tasty, unique and downright bizarre. The Pit Spitters General Manager, Mickey Graham, says the Pit Spitters experience is more than just baseball and fireworks, it’s food too.

“We want really good quality food and we want a variety. We also want the fans to have a hand in what’s out here,” Graham says.

There are seven finalists this year:Pit Spitters Food 1

Graham says there are a lot of great options.

“The Froot Loops and the hotdog — it’s not my thing, but maybe some people would like it. Or the big sandwich with the two cheeseburgers on it. There’s something for everyone,” Graham laughs.

With so many interesting options to choose from, fans will have a tough time making their pick. Graham says his favorite is the Chee-lote Cobb.

“I’m a corn fan and roasted corn — you can’t go wrong there,” Graham says.

The Pit Spitters say they are here for the fans. Graham says the main point of the fan food vote is to get people involved and allow the fans to have a say with what’s on the menu.

“Hot dog and beer is still the king. I mean, hot dog and beer at the ballpark it’s a summer tradition. But sometimes you don’t want a hot dog, sometimes you want something different and that’s what this is about: Letting the fans have a choice, a say with what’s going to be on the menu is important to us,” Graham explains.
