Recapping Seventh Inning Stretch Dinner

Another year, another tasty Seventh Inning Stretch Dinner! With baseball season now in full-swing, it was only a matter of time before that glorious ballpark food pulled itself to the front of our minds. On cue, the sun came out Tuesday, just in time for our Annual baseball-themed Seventh Inning Stretch Dinner!

Students from across campus came to Garden Commons to get their hands on a menu featuring items straight from the ballpark like corn dogs, soft pretzels, nachos, waffle fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and even Cracker Jacks. There was a hot dog bar, serving hot dogs, brats and metts, with additional assorted toppings. Pizza and sandwiches like Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork, spicy chicken and a hamburger bar offered students a delicious array of dinner options. That didn’t even include dessert, which was an ice cream bar with a choice of toppings, red velvet cupcakes, Babe Ruth bars and cookies.

Guests had the opportunity to enter our Cincinnati Reds Tickets Raffle, test their mettle with some baseball trivia, or interact with representatives from Mountain Dew Kickstart and Red Bull (both products are available across campus). Towards the end of the dinner, guests had the opportunity to go from eating ballpark food to watching baseball at the ballpark just down the street with Miami baseball hosting Xavier in the Joe Nuxhall Classic.

We want to thank the Miami baseball team for loaning us baseballs to use in our decorations, the Miami softball team for the jerseys they so graciously let us borrow so we could look the part and the Miami athletic department for setting us up with RedHawks hats! Thank you!

Make sure you’re following MiamiUDining on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, so you can keep tabs on all the upcoming special events, such as this! We’ll see you at next week’s (Tuesday, April 19) Picnic on the Patio at Bell Tower from 4-7:30pm!
