The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp’s new dining lineup includes more than a dozen shrimp options around the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. One is in the running for best new ballpark dish in Minor League Baseball. The Wheelhouse Surf & Turf Burger is in the BUSH’S® Home Run Recipes contest at milb.com/BushsHRrecipes.

 

Paired with BUSH’S® Original Baked Beans, the Surf & Turf Burger is a half-pound burger served on two pieces of grilled Texas Toast, and topped with pepperjack cheese and four jumbo shrimp. It is available in the Wheelhouse, the renovated suite-level lounge named by a fan contest before the inaugural season of the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp and open to all fans during Jumbo Shrimp home games.

 

“We created a menu that combines a unique flavor of Northeast Florida with traditional ballpark favorites, and the Wheelhouse Surf & Turf Burger is a signature of the Jumbo Shrimp and the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville,” said Jumbo Shrimp Director of Food and Beverage Ernest Hopkins. “With BUSH’S® Original Baked Beans, summertime and seafood come together for a tasty ballpark specialty.”

 

The BUSH’S® Home Run Recipes contest features an item with a BUSH’S® product from each of 65 teams in Minor League Baseball. At milb.com/BushsHRrecipes, voters choose among randomized pairings. Fans may take a shortcut to vote for the Wheelhouse Surf & Turf Burger at http://atmilb.com/2sRtu9y. Voting continues through Friday, July 14.

 

Fans who vote will also have a chance to win a trip for four to the winning ballpark to taste the top creation. The getaway includes airfare, two nights of hotel accommodations, and $200 spending money for even more food and fun. The winning club will also receive an award from BUSH’S® with a visit by Duke, the BUSH’S® dog, to its ballpark.
