MiLB teams expand offerings, launch charitable efforts

Good News Notes:

“With everything about the 2020 MiLB season up in the air, teams are finding ways to confront the coronavirus pandemic with expanded offerings and new charitable efforts in the absence of regular-season games in April.

It seems like a lifetime ago since the Minor League Baseball was delayed, but remember that the season was not scheduled to open until next week in any case. With no firm information on a start date that ultimately is dependent on when MLB launches play and an American commerce system essentially on hold, MiLB teams are in a wait-and-see status.

Some teams are launching curbside concessions, taking advantage of idled commissaries. RS3 Strategic Hospitality, the Austin-based concessions firm owned by Ryan-Sanders Baseball, is operating food services out of Dell Diamond, home of the Round Rock Express (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League). Offered at the Dell Diamond are both prepared meals off a full ballpark-food menu (nachos, wings, burgers, chili cheese dogs) available daily between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., as well as the sale of Family Meal Kits (priced at $162.36), which include several grocery staples plus five full-meals with four to five servings in each meal and cooking/reheating instructions. There are several iterations of a meal kit offered for pickup on April 6 (deadline for orders: April 2), including those built around Nolan Ryan Beef hot dogs and burgers. You can find more information here.”
