CHICAGO (WISH) – The 2019 Major League Baseball season is underway.
Like any new season, it means a renewed sense of optimism for each and every baseball fan, no matter how your team finished the previous season. It also means several new faces in your favorite team’s starting lineup, pitching rotation and bullpen.
While these changes are the more obvious of each new baseball season, some are a little less apparent but are still pretty delicious.
The Chicago Cubs are introducing a whole host of new dishes ahead of their home opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday, which can be seen on WISH-TV at 2 p.m.
The Cubs have added the following new treats at Wrigley Field:
- Pork Tenders: crispy hand-breaded pork strips served with Japanese barbecue sauce and cabbage and carrot slaw
- Beer Can Chicken Sandwich: beer-marinated chicken breast served with Dijonnaise, shredded lettuce, tomato and bacon on a brioche bun
- Wrigley House Chips: ranch-seasoned chips made in-house, served with Buffalo ranch dipping sauce
