RedHawk owners hope the way to the hearts of fans is through their stomachs

The name of the ballpark isn't the only thing that will change for RedHawks fans this season. The ballpark has a new food vendor, too, so fans will get to try out new hotdogs, burritos and cheesesteaks.

For fans that live on the spicy side of life, the Firecracker is a jalapeno cheddar wiener with shredded Monterey jack cheese, jalapeno peppers and chipotle mayonnaise.

And if fans really want to eat out - or in the outfield in the case - they can head down the right field line where there will be a new Steakadelphia stand.

Or they can try Mexican food at the new “Salsa” kiosk that serves nachos along with chicken and beef burritos made with freshly steamed tortillas.

The trade-off for freshly made food is that fans may have to wait longer to get it.

“It might take a little bit longer but because we have doubled our points of sale, you are not going to be waiting in a line a long time,” Shadrick said. “But it's worth waiting an extra minute or two to get something fresh, that's the way we look at it.”

There also is a new “Smokies” kiosk that will be grilling foot long hot dogs and brats, Polish sausages and jalapeno cheddar sausages.

Shadrick thinks fans will detect a notable difference through their noses during the season opener on Thursday night.

“The one thing that was missing from this stadium was you really couldn't smell anything, whether it was fresh popped popcorn,” he said.

“That was all done before in the dungeon downstairs. No one could ever smell it. Now, it's all made fresh right there. You should smell it in the stands. I think the smells will be a big difference that people will really notice when they first get in here.”
