The menu involves a starting lineup of eight sandwiches, the sides with french fries, combos involving a soda, a sandwich, a side of fries, and finally the closer, a dessert item.

Fans had an interesting take on this announcement, with many voicing their opinions online. Some fans pointed out the occasional boring gamedays during the regular season, while others lashed out at the expensive food items in the concession stand.

Here's a look at some of the comments on X:
