A Michigan minor league team plans to offer its fans an oink-tastic treat this summer.

Those who come to see the West Michigan Whitecaps play will have the opportunity to chow down on a Baco, ataco with a specially made bacon shell.

The Baco was the top vote-getter in the fourth annual Whitecaps food contest, which determines Fifth Third Ballpark's next culinary delight.

The team narrowed to 10 a list of more than 150 fan-submitted menu ideas and turned the contest over to the fans.

The second-place finisher was The Bad Joke, a corn dog covered in cheese with two strips of duck bacon on a bun.

Previous winners of the food contest include Chicks with Sticks and the Declaration of Indigestion. They've since been retired from the menu.
