Leaking beer and Cracker Jack mice: 5 bizarre things ESPN found in stadium food reports

Eating at a professional sports stadium is expensive for the fan and lucrative for the concession provider. It can also be a gross time for health inspectors, as ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” detailed in a report released Thursday.

“What’s lurking in your stadium food?” provided some thoroughly disturbing answers. The analysis looked at 16,900 routine food-safety inspection reports throughout 2016 and 2017 from local health departments of 111 North American sports venues.

It found that 28 percent of the stadiums had high-level violations at at least half of the outlets inspected. Those violations are ones that can pose a risk for foodborne illnesses.

HBT - Rebuilding the Orioles in Peabody Heights

The Terrapins, they called them. Their home field appeared on the north side of East 29th Street, where Peabody Heights now serves its flagship beer, an American lager called Old Oriole Park Bohemian; the name came with the permission of Peter Angelos and the Orioles, of course.

“At the beginning we asked [to use the Orioles’ name],” O’Keefe recalls, “and Mr. Angelos said, ‘All right, I probably won’t sue you.’”

The Terrapins spent the spring of 1914 warming up in North Carolina, then headed north for their home opener against the Buffalo Blues, which 30,000 fans attended, many of them relegated to standing room only.
