The Lake County Captains (Low Class A; Midwest League) unveiled a whale of a sandwich for the 2012 season, as the Moby Dick features five quarter-pound fish filets and six ounces of clam strips, among other ingredients.
The Moby Dick features a 15-inch sesame-seed hoagie roll, five quarter-pound fish filets, eight slices of cheese, six ounces of clam strips, one-third pound of French fries, one cup of cole slaw, all topped off by gobs of lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and tartar sauce — all for only $20.
The final product weighs in at over three pounds and feeds two fans uncomfortably or four fans comfortably. The sandwich, with over 4,000 calories and a diet-killing 200 grams of fat, will be available in select locations throughout Classic Park at all Captains home games.
“We wanted to challenge John Klein, our Director of Food & Beverage, to create a signature item for Classic Park and the Captains this season,” explained General Manager Brad Seymour. “I think it is safe to say that John and his staff took that directive to heart in creating this monster sandwich that our fans are either sure to enjoy or run from.”
Individual fans will have the opportunity to take the Moby Dick Challenge and attempt to consume a single Moby Dick sandwich in less than one hour by themselves. Fans wishing to attempt this feat will do so while seated in the Moby Dick Challenge Chair located on the main concourse at Classic Park. If they are successful, the fans who take part in the Challenge will receive a commemorative t-shirt that they can wear with pride and their photo will be placed on the Champion Eaters bulletin board at Classic Park.
