PRESS RELEASE – The Emeralds are competing against 63 other minor league clubs to crown the best ballpark food item in the land. The Emerald’s contest entry is the new Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Brat which was unveiled to rave reviews at the May 4th ticket release party at PK Park.
The 1034 calorie delight combines the traditional ballpark bratwurst with Voodoo’s legendary bacon maple bar. To promote the new food item, the Emeralds will be handing out FREE Bacon Maple Brats to the first 100 fans at the Eugene Voodoo Doughnuts location (20 East Broadway) this Friday, May 17 starting at 11:30am.
The concessions items have been placed into four separate brackets: Gut Busters, Hogs ‘N’ Dogs, Local Legends and Scrumptious Sandwiches. The Bacon Maple Brat is competing in the Hogs ‘N’ Dogs category against the likes of the Taco Dog (Fresno Grizzlies), the Pickle Dog (Charleston RiverDogs), the Nolan Ryan Sausage on a Stick (Round Rock Express) and more.
The Foodfight is taking place through social media and MiLB.com. Fans can find the link to the voting site HERE. Voters can also tweet their selection by tagging the @EugeneEmeralds and #Foodfight. Voting is unlimited so fans are encouraged to stuff the ballot box. The first round of voting ends Wednesday, May 29 with the remaining concessions items moving to a winner-take-all final round starting the following day spanning through Thursday June 6.
