The Mitchwich: A Texas-Sized Artery Destroying Burger In Honor Of Mitch Moreland (Pics)

Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland isn’t the most exciting player in the Texas lineup. In his three and a half years in the big leagues, the guy has 55 home runs and a line of .259/.321/.444—not exactly All-Star type production.

Nevertheless, he’s the starting first baseman, and the Rangers love him (now that they couldn’t upgrade at the trade deadline). So they’ve decided to express their love in the only way Texans know how: by naming a giant pile of meat after him.

Last week, Sportservice, which handles concessions at the Ballpark at Arlington, announced two new burgers to their lineup: The Mitchwich Mild and the Mitchwich Wild. Both are burgers made of bison and venison, but the mild version is topped with bacon, tomatoes, arugula and Colby jack cheese; while the wild version is topped with chorizo sausage, bacon, jalapenos, black bean spread and fried onions.

Both will stop your heart on the spot.

Of course, as is always the case with fast food, the actual product you buy always looks different than the promotional photos.

Here’s what Sportservice said the Mitchwich would look like:

As you can see, they take that “everything is bigger in Texas” thing very seriously.

God bless America!
