CHICAGO -- There are plenty of new food offerings to please your pallet at U.S Cellular this season.

Old favorites are getting kicked up a notch, like tater tots.  Only these are “tater tachos” are smothered in cheese and jalapenos.  There’s also the bacon cheddar pretzel dog and a new cheesy beef sandwich.

You can also get Italian beef pizza or barbequed chicken.

And or the health conscious there’s an arugula caprice salad.

Or add a little kick with a number of Latin dishes like chicken or carne asada tacos, pork carnitas and corn street nachos.

Also new this year are Asian wraps, buffalo chicken egg rolls and floats,  dreamsicle or a root beer.

Fans will also no longer have to try to get a glimpse of the scoreboard.  Gone are the smallest boards in baseball.  They have been replaced by three large video boards in the outfield.  At center what was nearly 1500 square feet has been replaced by an 8,000 square foot board. The two boards in left and right fields are each 2500-square feet.  It was more than seven million dollar upgrade to the 25 year old park.

For the White Sox, the new video boards mean more fan interaction and better use of social media for the team and for sponsors.  Most importantly team executives say it is a chance to give fans a better experience at the ball park.
