Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks, sure. But buy me some toasted grasshoppers with chile-lime salt? That might not hit a home run with everyone.
The grasshoppers, which the release refers to as "authentic Oaxacan chapulines," are a Mexican snack served up by a ballpark stand run by Poquitos Mexican restaurant, located in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood.
"We don't expect to sell a lot of them, but it's a fun thing to offer and it's authentic," Mariners spokeswoman Rebecca Hale told ESPN. A cup of grasshoppers costs $4.
The Mariners' home opener is April 10, when they'll attempt to hop to a victory over the Houston Astros in front of hometown fans.
