Matt Makes Ballpark Food At His House Episode 1: The Todd Coffey Sandwich

New, 80 comments

I could feel my arteries clogging as I was eating this.

Welcome to the pilot episode of "Matt Makes Ballpark Food in his Kitchen". If all goes well, this will be the first of many.

My first creation is the "Todd Coffey Sandwich". It was inspired by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, who recently wrote a book titled, "The Arm". A few months ago on Twitter he released an excerpt, and it caught our eye for a few reasons.

UPDATE: The video was featured on MLB Network on Tuesday, December 12, 2016!

A few notes. First, he had a separate luggage bag, just for his glove. I'm not a major league ballplayer, nor will I ever be, but that seems pretty weird to me, but hey, whatever floats your boat. Secondly, that sandwich just sounded amazing. It should be no surprise to any of you that Todd Coffey was a rather large man, and I am not. But nonetheless, I decided to take on this monster, and use twice the amount of Reese's Cups. It should be noted that this delicacy is only available to players who visit Chase Field, which means I might be the first non-Major League baseball player to eat this sandwich, ever.

This could potentially be the first of many videos of this sort, and I would love to hear your suggestions on how to make this better, or what you want me to make next in the comment section. Bon Appétit!
