Every year some baseball team comes out with a completely outrageous food item for their concession stands at the ballpark.
Who among us will ever forget the year the Cleveland

Okay, so yeah, that probably wasn’t the best food idea ever, but hey, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take, right?
This year, the Atlanta Braves (they’re still called the Braves, right?) announced that they will be selling a new burger at Truist Park.
The World Champions Burger, as they are calling it, includes *deep breath* a half-pound Waygu beef burger on a toasted, Irish-buttered brioche bun, topped with cage-free pan-fried eggs, gold-leaf-wrapped Hudson Valley foie gras, grilled cold water lobster tail, heirloom tomato, garden-fresh Bibb lettuce, Tillamook cheddar cheese and truffle aioli. It also comes with a side of Parmesan waffle fries and a replica World Series ring.
The price for all of that is going to be $151 which represents the 151 years that have passed since the founding of the franchise.
“It’s a very expensive burger, but you can bet it needs to be shared with a lot of different people,” Atlanta Braves president and CEO Derek Schiller told Fox 5 Atlanta. “It includes some gold foil, edible gold foil on it, some Waygu meat and all kinds of different things.”
Now, if that price tag is still too low for you, the Braves are also offering the same World Champions Burger with a limited edition World Series ring for $25,000 on the side… while supplies last, of course.
Major League Baseball fans had a wide range of reactions to the Atlanta Braves’ new burger offering.
And they couldn't pay Freeman?— Dano Damano (@D_Chat13) April 6, 2022
Well, time to make a bad fiscal decision— Tyler Avchen (@TylerTweets2224) April 6, 2022
But how much would it be without the tiny flags stuck in the bun?— Pedro Parker (@Metsbert2020) April 6, 2022
Fine sell some $25k limited edition rings, but with a burger lol. Such a weird idea - no one going to the game goes to the concession and says “hmm, for an additional $24.98k I can get a ring - sold!” Likewise, no one buying a ring cares about a $20 burger.— Tony Twister (@MrTonyTwister) April 6, 2022
Until this tweet I had no recollection Atlanta won the world series last year.— Andy (@AMM_Truth89) April 6, 2022
No bacon?— FeedJake14 (@FeedJake14) April 6, 2022
That is the real travesty here.
