WORCESTER, MA — The Worcester Red Sox will offer more than 100 menu items at Polar Park in 2023, the widest variety among all 120 Minor League Baseball clubs. New England Lobster Rolls, New England Clam Chowder, and tacos, all making their debut in WooSox ’23, headline the “100+ Delicious Delicacies for Every Taste at Polar Park.”

Fans can enjoy a first taste of the club’s new and expanded menu at the “Welcome Home Workout & Open House” at Polar Park Wednesday, March 29, from noon to 4 p.m.

The club will offer lobster rolls and clam chowder at all 75 home games during the 2023 season, and tacos will be offered on “Taco & Tequila Tuesdays,” presented by Tequila Herradura, when fans can enjoy three tacos and a margarita for $12 at “A Taste of Worcester,” presented by Masis Staffing Solutions.

In addition to presenting new menu items, the WooSox will again offer traditional ballpark fare, such as chicken tenders, burgers, and French fries. Local Polar Park staples, such as B.T. Smokehouse, Coney Island Hot Dogs, Creative Cakes, Kona Ice, Table Talk Pies, The Sausage Guy, and Wonder Bar Pizza, will continue to offer their culinary treats.

Fans seeking sweets can once again enjoy hand-spun cotton candy and several forms of ice cream: hand-scooped, soft serve, Sweet & Boozy, and Dippin’ Dots.

The club will also offer a variety of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and strictly kosher options.

“When we say there is ‘even more to do and see in WooSox ’23,’ we may want to add, ‘and even more dining options, too,’” said WooSox President Dr. Charles A. Steinberg. “Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and kosher options abound, particularly in the innovative WooSox Market, where fans can opt for a high-tech checkout in which they simply ‘Shop, Tap, and Go.’”

In addition to offering cuisines from around the world at 10 “Heritage Nights” and eight Los Wepas de Worcester games, presented by La Mega Radio, the WooSox today announced a diverse lineup of 11 local restaurateurs who operate “A Taste of Worcester” at 11 homestands, on Wednesdays through Sundays. The tastes include Mexican, Italian, Jamaican, Indian, Chinese, Puerto Rican, and Vietnamese options, among others.

“We love having local restaurants on display at Polar Park,” Steinberg said. “Worcester’s restaurant scene is a point of pride in our city, and we love telling that story to all of New England and throughout the world of baseball on our broadcasts and telecasts.”

The WooSox open their third season at Polar Park Friday, March 31, vs. the Syracuse Mets. Pre-game ceremonies begin at 3:15 p.m., first pitch is at 4:05 p.m., and UniBank Fireworks will conclude the evening after the game.
