Yes, technically the season has already started, but for many baseball fans, today is Opening Day. Which means that many of you are headed to the ballpark right now, thinking about what you’ll order from the concession stands. Will you go for the old standby hot dog, or try out one of the many new ballpark upgrades (more on that tomorrow, when we’ll unveil a special Food Republic feature on the history and recent evolution of baseball food). In the meantime, as the umps get ready to shout Play Ball, please enjoy this .gif featuring food and drink ads from baseball programs of the 1980s, including some samples from the late, lamented Montreal Expos (hence the French, and smoked meat sandwiches):

Baseball food and drink has evolved since the 1980s, when ads like these for Bud, Wendy’s and Burger King appeared in Major League Baseball programs.
