Mich. baseball park to offer 4,800-calorie burgers 密西根州棒球場提供4800卡路里的漢堡


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.


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.


The Midwest League team is a Class A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers.
