Take me out to the ballgame... for a roasted cricket?!?!

Baseballtown will be buzzing on Sunday when Ehrlich Pest Control sets up a popup "Pestaurant" at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Roasted mealworms, roasted crickets and scorpion-filled lollipops are among the edible insects you can sample.

If you feel squeamish, don't because they are food-grade insects. We're told they're a great source of protein.

Still, organizers admit it's not for everyone.

"It's a bit off beat. I think that' fair to say, but that was the whole point, to have a bit of fun," said Randolph Carter, Ehrlich Pest Control. "One thing I have to say is we're not recycling what we catch."

You can sample the bugs at Sunday afternoon's game between the Fightin Phils and the Portland Sea Dogs. The first 2,000 fans 14 and under will receive a Fightins soccer ball, courtesy of Ehrlich.
