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.

Atlanta, GA put quite a few new food oddities on the menu for the Braves' 2016 season, but none of them are as bizarre as the "Burgerizza" which is, just as the name implies, a burger inside a pizza. Well, to be more exact, it's a bacon cheeseburger on top of one pizza and topped with another.13131Is this out there?
