Delaware North elevates MLB fan experience with exciting 2024 offerings

The 2024 Major League Baseball season is officially underway. Delaware North, the original name in ballpark hospitality, unveiled a lineup of innovative culinary creations, new merchandise and enhanced fan experiences across the 10 venues it services.

“There is nothing quite like Major League Baseball’s Opening Day – and I know our teams at each of the 10 locations we serve are ready to ensure it’s special for the fans,” said Jamie Obletz, group president of Delaware North Sportservice, Patina Restaurant Group and United Kingdom operations. “The second one season ends, we roll up our sleeves and work closely with our partners at each ballpark to continue enhancing the guest experience for the following year.”

Globe Life Field, Texas Rangers
Highlights of the upcoming season include an array of new menu items available at general concession locations, such as the Boomstick Triple Play and Texas Tacos, showcasing bold flavors and local favorites.

The ballpark’s Arlington Eats outlet will continue to feature selections from local restaurants on a rotating basis, providing a taste of the vibrant local culinary scene. New and expanded partnerships with popular brands such as Whataburger, Golden Chick and Hurtado Barbecue add to the diverse culinary offerings available this season.

Delaware North’s retail team has curated new collections for the 2024 season, including the exclusive Rangers Gold Collection Merchandise commemorating the team’s 2023 World Series Championship. Other highlights include Onward Reserve’s custom-designed apparel and Kendra Scott’s luxury jewelry collection.

Target Field, Minnesota Twins
The culinary offerings at Target Field for the 2024 Twins season once again feature an array of locally inspired flavors and partners. Offerings include items from Union Hmong Kitchen (Banh Mi Brat), East Coast BBQ (Mac N’Meat), Lord Fletcher’s (Walleye Burger) and Two Mixed Up (Burger Fries, S’more Cookies and Just A Burger). The 2024 season also brings the return of the Family Value Stands, offering classic ballpark favorites priced under $5.

Fans will also enjoy an enhanced retail experience with the addition of new merchandise collections, including Nike Vapor Premier Elite jerseys and limited-edition Twins sneakers from Mache. Creator’s Corner, presented by U.S. Bank, will continue to support local businesses and entrepreneurs, providing dedicated retail space within the ballpark for small enterprises.

The Keeper’s Heart Town Ball Tavern, a cozy venue celebrating Minnesota’s rich town ball history with signature pub fare, will feature three new O’Shaughnessy Distilling Co. cocktails – Vanilla Creamed Whiskey, Cherry Smashed Whiskey and an Irish Mojito – while the Cutwater Cocktail Bar at Minnie & Paul’s will offer premium mixed cocktails and food from local favorites Pizza Luce and Red Cow.

Busch Stadium, St. Louis Cardinals
A standout addition for the season is the Budweiser 703 Club, a premium all-inclusive club paying tribute to Cardinals legend Albert Pujols and his remarkable 703 home runs. This exclusive club offers panoramic views of the field, a diverse selection of culinary delights and a full-service bar featuring specialty cocktails.

Local culinary talent takes center stage with the introduction of FarmTruk, offering farm-to-table dishes crafted with locally sourced ingredients. Meanwhile, general concessions will feature new items such as Chicken Tenders from Big Chicken and the Supreme Nacho Fries, adding excitement to the culinary landscape at Busch Stadium.

Following a successful launch of seven Mashgin self-checkout stations in 2023, Delaware North installed two additional stations, streamlining the checkout process at foodservice outlets throughout general concessions. Meanwhile, retail offerings also have been enhanced with new collections, including Cardinals’ City Connect uniforms.

Guaranteed Rate Field, Chicago White Sox
During the offseason, Delaware North began managing the ChiSox Bar & Grill, the full-service on-site restaurant located near the ballpark’s Gate 5 Plaza. Open to all White Sox fans, with or without a ticket to the game, the restaurant is located directly across 35th Street from Guaranteed Rate Field. The restaurant features more than 70 flatscreen TVs, a state-of-the-art sound system and spacious outdoor beer garden/seating, offering fans a fun atmosphere before, during and after White Sox games.

General concessions offerings include new menu items such as Empanadas, available in two different flavors, an Impossible Hot Dog, a refreshing Jack and Coke Float and more, providing fans with a variety of culinary options to enjoy during the game. Retail locations at Guaranteed Rate Field are showcasing new designs, exciting collaborations, and special promotions throughout the season. Fans can look forward to exclusive merchandise collections, including the 35th & Shields collection, and take advantage of “Southside Mondays” for discounted White Sox hats.

American Family Field, Milwaukee Brewers
From revamped concession menus to enhanced gathering spaces, fans can anticipate an upgraded ballpark experience at American Family Field.

Teaming up with 3rd Street Market Hall, the Brewers and Delaware North introduced the 3rd Street Market Hall Annex, located on the right field loge level. This new space showcases four local vendors: Kompali Tacos, Smokin’ Jack’s BBQ, KAWA and Anytime Arepa, along with a gaming area for fans of all ages.

J. Leinenkugel’s Barrel Yard, which debuted last year, is featuring a variety of new offerings for the 2024 season, including BBQ Ribs and Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy Bratwurst, in addition to exclusive pilot brews such as the Big Eddy Imperial IPA.

The Brewers and Delaware North have also announced several new food items throughout the ballpark, including fresh spins on the classic stadium hot dog, the Tipsy Polish Sausage, Chicken Parm Sandwich and Chili Cheese Tots, among others.

Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati Reds
Reds fans can enjoy a premium experience in the newly renovated Lexus Diamond Club, which has an expanded seating area and enhanced hospitality offerings, including live-action food stations and a merchandise kiosk with premium Diamond Club Collection items.

A new walk-in marketplace on the third-base concourse, the Food Hub, features more than 40 feet of hot food options, snacks and grab-and-go coolers, and is equipped with 32 self-service checkout stations, allowing fans to make quick purchases and get back to watching the game. Several new menu items will be available throughout the ballpark, including Hempler’s Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage, Big Red Dog and Bratter Up.

Delaware North also implemented Exo Checkout technology at the main Reds Team Store. The self-service station streamlines the customer checkout process and features RFID-enabled technology that quickly scans all the items a fan places in the checkout station and then completes the transaction, reducing wait times for merchandise.

Truist Park, Atlanta Braves
As part of a multiphase plan led by the Braves, Delaware North’s premium hospitality program continues to elevate at Truist Park. New spaces include Lexus Premium Boxes, offering unparalleled amenities for groups of 8 to 14 guests; the Blue Moon Beer Garden, offering an array of Molson Coors beverages and unique food pairings, alongside local favorites; and the Jim Beam Bourbon Decks and 60 Ft. 6 In. Bar, situated in left field, providing exclusive access to a pair of bars with a combined length of 60 feet and 6 inches to mirror the distance between the pitcher’s mound and home plate.

Throughout the ballpark, food additions aimed at enhancing the game-day experience include offerings from Taco Factory (The Big “Queso” and Grand Slam Nacho), Coop’s Championship Chicken (Uncle Charlie’s Chicken), 1871 Grill (Pitcher’s Mound, Perimeter Dog and 4 Bagger) and Slice (The Dinger).

Within the Coors Light Chophouse, Delaware North introduced Fielder’s Catch, an innovative take on an Atlanta steakhouse staple: two lobster tails, three fried oysters, sweet potato fries, candied bacon, shredded lettuce, heirloom tomatoes and spicy peach remoulade served on a split-top bun.

Progressive Field, Cleveland Guardians
Several new concessions items, a new open-air Terrace Garden space and expanded self-checkout technology options round out the new offerings for the 2024 Guardians season at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

Concession item highlights include The Heater sandwich, “Big Mozz” Mozzarella Sticks, Chicken Bacon Ranch Fries and new Choolaah bowl concept, which features basmati rice with spiced chicken or paneer, paired with tikka masala sauce or yellow lentil dal. Fried Chicken and JoJos by local acclaimed chef Vinnie Cimino also make their debut this season.

Fan-facing technology also expanded, with eight new Mashgin self-checkout stations added throughout Progressive Field, bringing the total number of stations to 12 and allowing fans to quickly complete transactions. Four stations are located within the new open-air Terrace Garden space in left field, which includes a 10-cooler beer market concept featuring a selection of 1,000 cans. Also new on the beer front is Tower City Craft, a market-style concept at Section 183 that features selections from local-favorite brands such as Great Lakes, Fat Heads, Market Garden, Masthead and Brew Kettle.

Comerica Park, Detroit Tigers
Elevated offerings in premium clubs, unique new concession menu items and an expanded retail lineup top the highlights at Comerica Park, where Delaware North serves as the hospitality and retail partner to the Detroit Tigers.

Comerica Park in 2023 served as the host for Delaware North’s inaugural Fan Fare Culinary Council, an event that actively engaged fans in shaping their food and beverage preferences. As a result of that feedback three distinctive local concepts – Marrow, Green Dot Stables and Slows Bar BQ – are either expanding their footprint or debuting at the ballpark this season. The culinary team also bolstered general concessions offerings with new takes on ballpark staples, including the Cheesesteak Hot Dog and Taqueria El Rey Charcoal Grilled Wings.

The retail lineup for 2024 features new authentic and replica jerseys by Nike, clubhouse and batting practice hats by New Era, and Simple Modern and Onward Reserve products. A commemorative ’84 line celebrating the anniversary of the 1984 World Series team and a Jim Leyland Hall of Fame collection cap off the exciting additions.

Petco Park, San Diego Padres
At Petco Park in San Diego, Delaware North’s culinary team debuted an assortment of new food and beverage offerings for fans, both in general concessions and premium spaces. Items available in concessions include fresh takes on fan favorites, such as Cali Fries, a Hot Hen Chicken Sandwich and Elote Dip.

In the ballpark’s premium space, offerings include Birria Egg Rolls, a King’s Hawaiian Cinnamon Roll, the G-Dog (Gallagher Dog) and more. Another exciting addition for 2024 is the debut of a new partnership with An’s Gelato, one of the highest-rated ice cream shops in the country, who opened an outpost location at Petco Park.

The reimagined Gallagher Square debuted just in time for the start of the season and includes a new team store where fans can purchase Padres gear, including special items commemorating the team’s Seoul Series and Petco Park’s 20th anniversary.
