Minor league baseball teams offer curbside pickup for signature ballpark foodsFans are still able to get their favorite food despite the parks being closed With sports stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic, minor league baseball stadiums have been empty. Still, teams are finding ways to attract fans to their ballparks in a new way. Many have opened up to offer curbside pickup for their concession foods.
