Opening Day of Major League Baseball

Opening Day of Major League BaseballSigns of Spring
The 2018 Major League Baseball regular season will begin on March 29—the earliest Opening Day in league history. This first day of baseball is the first day of spring for some people. And, this Thursday all 30 teams will be playing.

The full schedule of games can be watched on ESPN beginning at 12:30 with Miami v.z. Chicago. You can find the full game schedule here on the MLB site.  And, for a comprehensive description of how to stream Major League Baseball games to all your favorite devices check out this article on Tech Hive.

We can’t all take the day off from work to hang out in front of the TV. So, if you are planning to watch the action after a hard day of work, here are our suggestions for a great ballpark dinner that requires little preparation.

Hot Dogs and Buns
For Hot Dogs we highly recommend Miller Hot Dogs in our meat case. And, always, Cakebox hotdog buns. Cakebox buns have a homemade flavor and are deliciously moist—not just your average piece of white bread.

If you want to go the sausage route, why no try some Saag’s Bratwurst or Polish Sausage on a Pretzilla pretzel bun. Haven’t heard of them? Light and airy with a touch of sweetness, Pretzilla has a unique pretzel flavor profile perfect for building a sandwich.

Maille Mustard sets the gold standard. Try (pick on or two) on your next hot dog or sausage. Maille Dijon Originale, Maille Old Style, Maille Honey Dijon, and Maille Rich Country. The right condiment can define a meal.

Sonoma Brinery pickles and sauerkraut can top it off. They create pickles reminiscent of the ones you could grab out of a barrel in a New York deli. And their sauerkraut is delicious.

Stonewall Kitchen Farmhouse Red Relish is a staff favorite. The sweet fresh goodness of red cherry peppers provides an ideal kick of heat to liven up a dog, while the mellow onions and red bell peppers offer balance in this perfect condiment.

Cracker Jack is a classic! Candy-Coated Popcorn, Peanuts and a Prize…That’s what you get in Cracker Jack!

And wash it all down with some Lagunitas IPA, a favorite local brew that is big on aroma with a hoppy-sweet finish.

Or, if you are going the lemonade route, we love Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade with their amazing array of flavors—delicious and refreshing.
