IT'S BIG.  Minor league ballpark unveils new 5/3 pound burger topped with lettuce, tomato, nacho cheese, chili, salsa and crunched tortilla chips that feeds up to four people -- or one person from Michigan.

We have pizza, which feeds a family of four, and I don't think it costs $20, unless you are someone who feels the need to load it up with toppings so much that you don't even know what you are eating.

We have a 5/3rd field for the Dayton Dragons.  Is it the same food service in both?

The stuff on the bottom is the chili

They should allow you to purchase one in exchange for a single share of Fifth Third stock, which was in recent years valued at around 50 bucks

I can feel my stomach rolling over and starting to throw up in my mouth a little.

Now that would be a challenge to eat while sitting in one's seat at a ball game.

This looks like the same deal.  Its confusing.  It mentions the 5/3rd as the name but it weighs 4 lbs.  It has 5 1/3 patties.
 

Mich. baseball park to offer 4,800-calorie burgers

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Well, at least the salsa is low-cal.
The West Michigan Whitecaps, a minor league baseball team, will be offering up major league cholesterol, carbohydrates and calories in an enormous hamburger being added to the menu this year at the Fifth Third Ballpark.
The 4-pound, $20 burger features five beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili and liberal doses of salsa and corn chips, all on an 8-inch sesame-seed bun. That's a lot of dough!
The Grand Rapids Press reports that anyone who eats the entire 4,800-calorie behemoth in one sitting will receive a special T-shirt. Saner fans can divide it up with a pizza cutter and share.
Stadium sponsor Fifth Third Bank is based in Cincinnati.
