Texas Rangers Partner with Nolan Ryan's All-Natural Beef for 2013
By / MLB.com
Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef has been selected as the exclusive hot dog and official beef provider for the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. Beginning with the 2013 season, fans will be served all beef hot dogs at the ballpark’s food service sites.
As the Official Hot Dog and the Official Beef of the Texas Rangers, Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef will expand its existing presence at the Ballpark by providing top quality meat products at restaurant venues, concession stands, hawker boxes and grill carts throughout the park. Additionally, Nolan Ryan Beef will now sponsor the ever-popular $1 Hot Dog Night promotion held on select Wednesday home games.
“Few things are as synonymous with baseball as hot dogs, and we’re proud to elevate that experience for Texas Rangers Baseball fans by adding our Hickory Smoked Beef Franks to the menu line-up,” said Charlie Bradbury, president and CEO of Nolan Ryan Beef. “This is a great opportunity for our business and ranching partners as it will increase awareness of our brand in the baseball community.”
The Hickory Smoked Beef Franks contain no gluten, soy or MSG. Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef is hand selected by trained experts and only about 60 percent of cattle receive endorsement as Nolan Ryan Beef.
The partnership also means a return of the The Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Texas Beef 10K StrikeOut! fan promotion, which launched during the 2012 season. Each time the Rangers successfully strike out their opponent 10 times within a home game, one lucky row of fans in the stadium will win $50 worth of Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef.
Winners of this promotion can redeem their $50 of Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Texas Beef at Kroger stores in Texas and Louisiana. Kroger is the exclusive retailer of Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Texas Beef. Additionally, Kroger stores also carry Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Grass Fed Beef.
