Maybe it's the lack of pies.

Three weeks after ESPN’s Eddie Matz called Camden Yards’ low attendance numbers “borderline shocking,” the Orioles are still struggling to get fans in the seats – even as they fight for the postseason – and no one can quite figure out why.

This year Camden Yards is adding a classic Reuben to the concessions roster, and I’m sure it’s good, but there’s no way I’m choosing that over any of these inventive and twisted items I can’t get anywhere else. With that in mind, here are three brand-new menu items worth knowing about:

+ The Half-smoke Sausage. A sausage from Roma’s Gourmet covered with grilled barbecue onions, according to the Sun. WJZ claims it’s going to be Old Bay-ified, too. Get it from das Sausage House or Jack Daniel’s Grill.

+ The Crab Roll. On the face of it, the least far-out of the trio. It’s a cold crab-salad sandwich, the Baltimore version of the New England lobster roll.  Dempsey’s Brew Pub executive chef Josh Distenfeld expects it to be “a nice cold sandwich during the hot summer months here.”

I Seriously Can’t Believe the New Foods that Camden Yards Is Selling
