The Orioles officially announced today via press release a majority of their plans for the new concession items in 2011.  After partnering with Delaware North Sports Sportservice, the group has set off on their $11 million project to enhance the concession items sold at Oriole Park, as well as signage and menus, too.

New items at the Yard include crab cakes, Berger cookies, a new Big Boog sandwich, steak & egg sandwiches, and more!

Below, find some photos I recently took of some of the new concession stands as well as information about new menu items available at Oriole Park this coming season!


Foods making their debut at the ballpark this season (along with brief descriptions):

Camden Yards Crab Cake: Sportservice chefs got their inspiration for the Camden Yards Crab Cake by sampling the Maryland favorite at more than 50 restaurants in the region. The exclusive crab cake for Oriole Park’s concessions and premium areas is made with all-jumbo lump crabmeat and served with cocktail and tartar sauces, fresh lemons, crackers and Tabasco®.

The Birdland Dog: Sportservice created The Birdland Dog by topping the crowd-pleasing Esskay

hotdog with the tastes of Baltimore: smoked pit beef, Little Italy pepperoni hash, stewed tomato

jam and crispy, fried onions. Nestled in a fresh bakery bun, it’s a hot dog that eats like a meal.

Polock Johnny’s Sausage: A Baltimore favorite from the popular eatery in the Lexington Market,

this brand holds true to its 1921 slogan: “Polock Johnny is my name. Polish sausage is my game.”

O’s Pretzel: These tasty pretzels are hand-rolled and formed in the Orioles script “O.” Sportservice

chefs make them from scratch daily, baking and basting them in butter and finishing each pretzel

with a sprinkling of kosher salt. Fans can dip them in their favorite condiment, but we predict many

will love them just the way they are.

Chop House Steak & Egg Sandwich: Sportservice uses certified Angus skirt steak, marinated and served with balsamic onions, horseradish cream and Gouda cheese. A fried egg is the finishing

Beer-Battered Soft-Shell Crab Sandwich: This new sandwich features Chesapeake Bay soft-shell crab, battered in a mixture of National Bohemian Beer and Old Bay® spices, lightly fried and served on a fresh roll. With local taste as the driving force, this sandwich is a sure home run.

Little Italy Meatball Sub: A nod to the traditions of Baltimore’s Italian community, the meatballs are made right at the ballpark with San Marzano tomatoes, Pecorino Romano cheese, basil, garlic and other ingredients. Sportservice chefs hand-roll and finish the meatballs with dry white wine.

Rolling Crab: Our roller grills aren’t just for hot dogs anymore. Sportservice’s spiced-up crabmeat

option boasts a spring roll filled with crab meat, peppers, pepper jack cheese and various secret

spices. Flash-fried and then served from a traditional roller grill, the Rolling Crab satisfies one of

Baltimore’s most sought-after tastes with a Tex-Mex flair.

Boog’s BBQ: One of the most recognizable brands in the ballpark returns with a rich variety of pit

beef, pork and turkey sandwiches. The meat is seasoned with Boog’s signature barbeque rub,

smoked and then charred on an open flame. This year we’re introducing the Big Boog – twice the

meat with the same great flavor.

Berger Cookies: The signature Berger Cookie – a vanilla wafer topped with a thick layer of

chocolate ganache – has been one of Baltimore’s local treats since the Berger family brought it

from Germany in 1835. There’s a reason it’s been around for 175 years: It was perfect from the
