Ballpark Visit: Metro Bank Park / Harrisburg Senators / 4

We visit Metro Bank Park, the newly renovated home of the Harrisburg Senators. Page 4: Concessions, For the Kids, Before/After the Game.


New ballparks, of course, offer an abundance of concession opportunities. That’s the same with Metro Bank Park, which features concessions throughout the park. There are clusters of concession stands beneath the first-base bleachers and on the concourse level of the grandstand. In addition, there is an excellent beer stand and standalone booths on the ground level, in back of the grandstand.

For those seeking local beers, you can find Appalachian Brewing Co. and Yuengling brews for $6.25. Appalachian beers are brewed at a downtown brewery, in a building dating back to 1915.

The Spot was a Harrisburg landmark, serving up hot dogs and burgers for almost 70 years before closing in 2007. The Spot lives on at the ballpark in a booth in back of the ballpark. The offerings are unusual to say the least: We tried an Ollie Hot Dog, complete with BBQ sauce, bacon, onion and cheese. It was insanely good, and a relative bargain at $3.75.
