HI NOTES: 3rd Base Sliders, Game 2 Time

3rd Base Sliders
Tucked down the left field line at Taylor Stadium, next to the McArtor Building, is a new concession stand called 3rd Base Sliders.  Operated by Levy Restaurants, the concession contractor for MU Athletics, this food cart and grille set up offers a different sort of ballpark food than Mizzou Baseball fans are used to.

The usual hamburgers, hot dogs and nachos are still available at the main concession stands on the concourse, but here at 3rd Base Sliders the fare includes Philly Cheese sliders, Hot Ham & Swiss sliders, Classic American all beef sliders, Tiger dogs (with buffalo sauce and blue cheese slaw), North Sider dogs (Chicago style hot dogs), and other items (including bottled sodas).

I ordered the Philly Sliders and had to wait while Levy Restaurants Chef Travis Taylor grilled the beef and onions and cheese from scratch and then cut the normal-sized Philly sandwich into three slider-sized portions and skewered them together with dill spears and plenty of grilled onions and kettle-style chips.  The result was well worth the wait, and for a reasonable price for ballpark fare.

Most fans seem unaware there's such a treat available down the third base line -- the workers had plenty of time to  grant ample attention to each of their customers.  There really should be more advertising and mention made of this new feature.

3rd Base Sliders will be serving up their specialties at every weekend SEC home game this season.  Be sure to check them out and tell your friends.  Just carrying the sliders back to your seat in the grandstands will serve as an attention-grabbing advertisement that there's something different available.

Game Day

Remember: Saturday's game starts at 1:00 PM, not 2:00. Changed because it is nationally televised on Fox Sports and ESPN3.
