11 Grilling Ideas For People Who Love Both Baseball And Barbecues

Hit your next BBQ out of the park with these baseball-themed ideas and bring big league grilling flavor home with Weber Sauces & Seasonings.

1. Set out peanut and popcorn baseball buckets:

2. Make a grilled fruit sangria for guests who'd prefer an alternative to beer:

3. Create a baseball diamond fruit platter:

5. Set up a baseball-themed party game like Can Bash:

6. Knock one out of the park and make a "home run" hot dog bar:

7. Make no-hassle grilled cheese fries for a winning side dish:
