Inside the stadium there are many restaurants including KFC and Burger King. Many people get take out and enjoy the games while eating. There are also many other restaurants and food vendors. Baseball wouldn’t be nearly as great for the spectators without beer. People generally bring their own beer but for a slightly higher price you can pick up an ice-cold beer at the stadium. Also, Max beer have staff walking around the stadium with Kegs on their backs dispensing fresh draft beer for a fee. Smoking is prohibited in all seating areas of the stadium.
