What would sports be like without food? The biggest day of the year in terms of eating chicken wings and ordering pizza comes from Super Bowl Sunday, so eating and watching professional athletes perform only go hand in hand. If you’re going to eat during a game, you’d probably like to do it at home since it’s much cheaper and you don’t even have to leave your couch to have someone come deliver to you.
For those of us that like to go to sporting events, you probably can’t pass up the great food offered once you smell it at the stadium. There is the standard fare like hot dogs or ice cream cones, but if you really want a true ballpark experience, you have to grab one of the signature items at the park.
Some of the signature items fall a bit short and are only popular with those that hardly ever go to the games, but then there are some that you have to travel across the country for to try yourself. Which signature stadium items are the best, though? Here are the 15 best ballpark foods that you can find in professional sports.

1 1. The Closer (Pittsburgh Pirates)
Former Pittsburgh Pirates closer Jason Grilli was affectionately known by some as Grilled Cheese, a name that would be passed on to a sandwich that the Pirates sell at PNC Park. The sandwich has everything, with four thick slices of bread, a total of nine cheeses, candied bacon and even a Granny Smith apple with a leek. With those nine different types of cheeses, this is not a sandwich for the lactose intolerant as it may cause a trip to the ER.
