All-You-Can-Eat Night by the numbers

Last night, BB&T Ballpark hosted its first ever All-You-Can-Eat Night! This was one of the most crowded events on a Thursday night in the history of BB&T Ballpark, with 4,219 fans in attendance.

In our debut of All-You-Can-Eat Night, Dash fans consumed more than 7,400 hot dogs, hamburgers or cheeseburgers. That’s 1,160 pounds of food in seven innings!

Check out some photos from last night:

What good is ballpark food without ketchup and mustard?

All-You-Can-Eat version of the Dash Dots

It’s a big night at BB&T Ballpark with our first-ever All-You-Can-Eat Night, so let’s give you some Dash Dots to tide your hunger over before gametime.

DASH DOTS:

  • Chris Bassitt set a new career high with seven innings of work on Wednesday at Myrtle Beach. In his six career appearances against the Pelicans, Bassitt boasts 23.1 scoreless innings, including his seven-inning effort in the deciding third game of the 2012 Southern Division Championship Series.
  • Not only are the Dash tied for first in the Southern Division, but they also currently have the best earned run average (3.03) through twelve games. The Dash also became the third team to notch a shutout victory with Wednesday’s 2-0 triumph.
  • Outfielder Mark Haddow has hit safely in 10 straight games, which is the longest streak in the Carolina League this year and currently tied for the longest streak in the White Sox organization with Birmingham’s Marcus Semien. Haddow’s streak began on April 6 at Carolina. Haddow boasts a .389 batting average as well as five RBIs and seven runs scored during the streak.
  • Top White Sox prospect Courtney Hawkins is tied for the league lead with five home runs. Hawkins’ latest home run from last night was, well, crushed. Take a look.
  • Top pitching prospects will face off tonight as Chris Beck (1-1, 0.00 ERA), the top pitching prospect on the Dash’s roster according to Baseball America, goes against fellow righty Kyle Zimmer (0-0, 1.64 ERA), Kansas City’s top overall farmhand per the publication. Both hurlers have gotten off to great starts in their High-A careers, so this could be a good one at BB&T Ballpark.

Tonight will the Dash’s first ever All-You-Can-Eat night! Guests will consume an unlimited amount of burgers and hot dogs through the seventh inning. Will All-You-Can-Eat night beat out the highest Thursday attendance in BB&T Ballpark history (4,968)? Find out in tomorrow’s post about All-You-Can-Eat night!
