The Pirates take a hot dog and Cracker Jacks covered in mac 'n cheese on naan bread. The Braves have the Sausage Sundae: mac 'n cheese, mashed potatoes and pulled pork inside a split smoked sausage.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. It was opening day for baseball yesterday and the competition for the weirdest food at the ballpark. The Pittsburgh Pirates mashed together two classics - a hot dog and cracker jacks, covered in mac and cheese and naan bread. Not to be out-grossed, the Atlanta Braves are offering their new sausage sundae - three scoops mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, pulled pork, inside a split smoked sausage with a cherry tomato on top. It's MORNING EDITION.
