Most baseball fans just want to watch their favorite team with a good old-fashioned hot dog and a handful of peanuts. Most.

But for some, a day at the ballpark is one without caloric rules or restrictions. It’s a chance not just to cheer on the hometown heroes, but take part in a gustatory exhibition that would make Joey Chestnut blush. Venues all across the league have worked to put healthy choices in place, including vegan and even gluten-free options, but these adventurous eaters bypass those for two-foot long franks and three pound plus burgers.

This season there is no shortage of gut-busting items on stadium menus.
