Trends come and go, but sometimes peanuts, Cracker Jacks, and a good ole fashion kosher hot dog are just the things to get through those nine innings. Traditional fan favorites like burgers, Italian sausages, and those loaded fries aren't going away any time soon. For 2018, the park has teamed up with Nathan's Hot Dogs to be the official hot dog vendor of the park, bringing with it options like corn dogs and French fries, too.
