Wilmington Blue Rocks Team with Krispy Kreme for Extreme Ballpark Grub

I'm not a huge baseball fan but I do enjoy taking in a half dozen games or so during the season.

The ballparks have become better, teams try and interact with the fans more, and the food has certainly been taken up a notch – or twenty – since the days of eating soggy hot dogs and stale popcorn at Vet Stadium.

And give credit to the minor league teams that take the ballpark grub to another level in their attempts to pry fans away from the MLB stadiums nearby.

The Wilmington Blue Rocks – an affiliate of World Series runners-up the Kansas City Royals – have teamed up with Krispy Kreme to offer a heart-stopping concoction sure to get your heart racing and make your fingers a sticky mess.

The as-yet-unnamed "hot dog" (sure, let's call it that) features a dog, bacon and raspberry jelly stuffed inside a glazed Krispy Kreme donut.

You can even help name the dog by entering a contest at the team's website. The winner will receive tickets to opening night, the opportunity to throw out the first pitch, a stadium gift card and bragging rights forever thanks to a plaque commemorating the naming.
