TRUSSVILLE — The concession stand at Phil English Field is going to be crazy this spring.
The Trussville City Board of Education on Monday approved Crazy Horse restaurant in Argo to provide concessions for the 2015 Hewitt-Trussville baseball season. Board members’ main concern was of keeping concession items priced competitively. They were assured prices would remain competitive with other concession stands.
Head coach Jeff Mauldin said he liked the idea of having former Hewitt-Trussville baseball player and graduate Hunter Evans, the owner of Crazy Horse, to provide concessions. Mauldin said Evans has a lot of “Hewitt-Trussville pride,” which intrigued him.
Mauldin said he wants games to be “fun” for those attending, but not just the watching the games part. Certain games could feature themes this season, with a special item on the menu. Burgers could be called “Husky Burgers” for Hewitt-Trussville fans. For, say, Vestavia Hills fans, a burger that day could be called the “Rebel Burger.”
The main reason for the move, Mauldin said, is to take parents out of the concession stand so they can watch their sons play.
“Our parents will be ecstatic,” Mauldin said.
