Accompanying this culinary masterpiece in a packaged deal are the Boomstick Burger and Boomstick Hot Dog, creating an impressive 6-foot feast designed to feed a small group. A limited number of only 10 per game are available for $250 at Stand 24 at the top of Section 133.
Also new to the Globe Life Field culinary lineup is the “Heim Hammer,” appropriately named after Rangers catcher Jonah Heim, featuring a substantial beef shank that is hand-carved to create delectable street tacos. The Heim Hammer is available for $99 at Hurtado’s BBQ near Section 141.
