Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to get our grub on, we listen up.
When I’m watching a ball game, I don’t usually care what anyone but me wants to eat. Another hot dog? No, I’ll switch it up and have a taco. So I’m not sure why I started to think about what major league baseball players like to eat off the field. Maybe it’s the recent book "Diamond Dishes: From the Kitchens of Baseball's Biggest Stars". Or maybe I just wasn’t hungry at the moment. Anyway, several heroes from the 2011 All-Star game have strong opinions about what they eat.
Brian Wilson, San Francisco Giants: Eight Egg White Omelette
Prince Fielder, Milwaukee Brewers: Boca Burgers
Lance Berkman, St. Louis Cardinals: Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
But when he’s watching football, it’s a different story: "I like the Canadian bacon and pineapple Hawaiian pizza."
Alex Rodriguez, New York Yankees: Fish and plain steamed vegetables
No, Rodriguez and I don’t have much in common diet-wise. Except that when he was at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas he very much enjoyed the paella at Jaleo and a big platter of sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill, and separately, I did, too.
