You’re preparing to spend all day at the ballpark so what do you pack in your cooler? To play at your best you have to fuel your body with foods that will give you the energy you need but not weigh you down.  These protein-packed snacks taste as good as a cookie and you can easily pop them into your mouth between innings. Enjoy!
