We're not exactly sure when ballpark food turned into such an arms race, but it is a fascinating study of creativity and capitalism.
The Diamondbacks have introduced an 18-inch, bacon-stuffed corn dog that costs $25. The White Sox have unveiled a a 12-scoop, banana split in a full-size batting helmet for $17 .
And now the Twins are taking it up a notch with a new twist on the Bloody Mary. The version being offered at Hrbek's Pub inside Target Field comes with bacon cheeseburger:

It will cost $18. It's a decent bet that thrill eaters would be eager to give this a shot.
