The Choomongous -- it's humongous! It's named after Shin-Soo Choo, the new Rangers outfielder. It's a two-foot-long sandwich topped with Asian beef and spicy slaw.

Opening day for the Texas Rangers is Monday. The Rangers play the Phillies at 1:05 p.m. And Tanner Scheppers is the Rangers’ Opening Day starter, replacing Yu Darvish, who’s on the disabled list and dealing with stiffness in his neck.

We’re not going to preview the season right now. What we are interested in, though, is what’s new to eat. And the answer is … big! The bigger, the better. 

The Rangers unveiled their menu last week. Here’s a look at what you can eat at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
