Tim McGraw Reveals His Must-Have Food Item During a Baseball Game

It's just not a baseball game for Tim McGraw without this quintessential ballpark bite.

Tim McGraw loves going out to catch a ballgame, but only if it involves some good eats.

In honor of opening day for the MLB, the country superstar, 55, told Taste of Country Nights radio host Evan Paul about his must-have snack while watching baseball: a hot dog—or two.

"Oh, I gotta have a hotdog ... or two. Or three," the 55-year-old artist candidly stated. "Yeah, I love hotdogs—especially a good chili dog if I can find it!"

As many country music fans already know, McGraw has always been a big baseball fan, considering his familial ties to the sport. His late father, Tug McGraw, was actually in the MLB and played for the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Mets in the '60s, '70s and '80s.

But the "Humble and Kind" singer had a complicated relationship with his dad, who he didn't even know was his father until age 11. Despite their rocky start, the crooner later grew close to his dad later on in life and maintained a relationship with him up until his death from brain cancer in 2004.

"People ask me, 'How could you have a relationship with your father? You were growing up in nothing. He was a millionaire baseball player. He knew you were there, and he didn’t do anything.' But when I found out Tug McGraw was my dad, it gave me something in my little town in Louisiana, something that I would have never reached for. How could I ever be angry?" McGraw said of his father in 2019, as Parade previously reported.

He also opened up about finding out his dad was a famous athlete, which inspired him to believe that anything was possible for him.

"It changed what I thought I could do with my life coming from the circumstances I came from," he said. "I felt like when I found that out, you know, he’s a professional baseball player who’s successful, to me, it made me think that blood is in my veins, so that ability is in there."

"So I found sort of that grit inside me that he must have had in order to succeed at what he did. And it changed what I thought I could make out of my life," noted McGraw, now a Grammy-winning artist and one of the biggest names in country music.
