I’ll Have A Strasburger

 

I have a lot of ties to baseball.

As a child, my dad took me (bribed me) to all the Atlanta Braves games. So many games that I can still recite most of their roster from the 80’s (add that to my amazing list of talents).

I’m related to Christy Mathewson, one of the “first five” members inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

And now, there is a hamburger named after Washington Nationals pitcher, Stephen Strasburg. It is appropriately called, The Strasburger.

The Burger Joint featured a hamburger in Strasburger’s honor during the month of June.  The burger was designed to contain ingredients charting Strasburg’s path to the majors.

They start with their normal hamburger patty and then butterfly a hot dog on top to celebrate Strasburg’s pro debut with the Phoenix Devil Dogs from the Arizona Fall League.

Next, they give the burger a layer of cheese (Vermont aged cheddar) in honor of Strasburg’s stop in AAA Syracuse.

Finally, the burger is topped with one pickle for every strikeout Strasburg recorded in his debut, piled high with 14 pickles!!

It’s looking pretty good to be a Strassburger right now!!!!
