SALEM, Va. (WFXR) — Take me out to the ball game? More like take the ball game — or at least the peanuts and crackerjacks — to you! After the success of “Opening Day To Go,” the Salem Red Sox announced Wednesday the meal service would continue through the remainder of April.
The Salem Red Sox hosted “Opening Day To Go” on Thursday, April 9, offering ballpark concession items for purchase during the postponement of the 2020 baseball season. During that event, more than 700 meals were served, of which more than 300 went to healthcare workers, first responders, and grocery store employees, team officials say.
Since the singular event was so successful, the Salem Red Sox are introducing “Red Sox To Go” every Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the rest of April.
Fans may order select packaged beer and a variety of concession items to go, including burgers, hot dogs, soft pretzels, fried fish sandwiches, pizza, bacon ranch chicken sandwiches, and more. Meals cost $5 to $7 each and include fries and a drink.
“Due to the overwhelming success and support from the community, we are thrilled to extend this promotion indefinitely to the fans and essential workers.”Director of Food and Beverage, Mike Ferrero
