Let's face facts: this is America and over-the-top food makes everything better. A six-hour drive up the Interstate: stop at In N Out for a 4x4... animal style. Stuck in a town with nothing but a one-horse saloon and a greasy spoon? Get hammered and eat whatever pickled treats are behind the bar and order the 17-egg omelette from the diner as a hangover cure. Watching your favorite baseball team get thrashed at the hands of their rivals? It's time to seek out the greatest food abominations in MLB.
The craziest ball park offerings range from the bizarre (Rocky Mountain oysters at Coors Field) to the sublime (bacon on a stick. Bacon. On a stick) and are sure to elevate your game day by more than a couple notches. In addition to your standard bizarre MLB stadium snacks, there are eating challenges that could earn you season tickets (Tropicana Field), as well as absurd portions ostensibly labeled for consumption by 2-4 people that you'll no doubt attempt on your own.
What are the weirdest baseball concession options? What baseball stadiums have the craziest foods? Short of visiting all the MLB ballparks, growing a belly for the ages, and possibly getting dropped by your healthcare provider, this list of bizarre baseball stadium foods is your best way to get to know the ways baseball fans are packing in the snacks this baseball season.

Well, to be more exact, it's a bacon cheeseburger on top of one pizza and topped with another.15535Is this out there?

12-Scoop Banana Split (U.S. Cellular Field)
The powers that be in the Chicago White Sox organization decided that a mini helmet full of soft serve wasn't good enough for their fans. Instead, they've chosen to offer a full-size batting helmet filled with 12 scoops of ice cream, several bananas, whipped cream, strawberry sauce, chocolate drizzle, and cherries in what has to be the biggest confectionery treat in the MLB.265113Is this out there?
