Move over Adam Richman ... Man vs. Food has nothing on this awesome fan at Friday night's Texas RangersBoston Red Sox game.
The old saying goes that "Everything is bigger in Texas," especially the food that can be found at the concession stands at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.
And on that list of gigantic food offerings is the impressive Beltre Buster.
NESN cameras caught one very hungry fan eating the 24-ounce hamburger during Friday night's broadcast.
The production kept up with the gentleman, following his progression throughout the night.
Persistence paid off for this big eater, as by the end of the game, it looked as if he dusted off the monster meat patty.
NESN announcer Don Orsillo was so impressed with the feat that he tried it himself ... but came nowhere near this champion chomper.
The Beltre Buster is new to the Texas Rangers menu this season. The burger is named after Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre and over a pound of beef, eight ounces of bacon and is covered in grilled onions.
And if you are ready to tackle this challenge at your next Rangers game, bring some extra cash as this beast runs a mean 26.

ARLINGTON, Texas Justin Grimm, who was the starting pitcher for the Texas Rangers Thursday night, can only hope is May is as good as his April was.
The right-hander, who started the season in Triple A Round Rock, was named the American League rookie of the month for April.
Grimm made three starts for the Rangers, going 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA. His ERA is the lowest among AL rookie...
The Texas Rangers have a rehab plan in place for right-hander Colby Lewis.
Lewis, who is scheduled to make an extended spring start Saturday in Surprise, will join Triple A Round Rock next following that game if there are no issues.
Lewis, who is coming back from a torn right flexor tendon, will make his rehab debut May 9 for Round Rock in Las Vegas with the plan for him to throw...
ARLINGTON, Texas No one needs to tell the Texas Rangers they aren't getting the job done at the plate.
They know it and the numbers back it up. The club also believes it can turn things around at the plate.
Texas came into Friday's series opener against Boston batting just .238 over the past five games. When the Rangers have gotten hits, they haven't been able to string...
ARLINGTON, Texas Rangers closer Joe Nathan almost had to re-introduce himself to his teammates when he finally returned to the mound Saturday.
Nathan had not pitched since April 26 at Minnesota, but showed no signs of rust with a quick, 1-2-3 ninth inning in the 5-1 win over the Red Sox.
It wasn't a save situation, except in the sense that it saved Nathan from having to wait...
The Rangers must have known somehow that I had a bad day and needed them tonight. They sure came through. What good boyfriends!
Derek Holland was pretty great. He tossed eight scoreless innings, allowing six hits and walking one while fanning six. He didn’t have his usual meltdown inning, and he didn’t seem to lose focus even after his teammates gave him a nice big cushion...

Sometimes, it’s just not your night — and it certainly wasn’t on Friday night for the Red Sox.
Derek Holland pitched eight shutout innings and Adrian Beltre had all the RBIs the Rangers needed to come away with a 7-0 win over the Sox. Felix Doubront was shaky early and was burned for it eventually, but the Red Sox offense never got going in a significant way anyway.
The Colorado Rockies signed veteran pitcher Roy Oswalt to a minor league deal on Thursday. Oswalt posted a 5.80 ERA in 17 appearances with Texas last season.
Oswalt will report to extended spring training before being assigned to a minor league team.
During his time away from the game, Oswalt has been staying in shape at home in Mississippi. If Oswalt has anything left in his arm...
The Red Sox have dropped the first two games in a three-game series with the Texas Rangers, and the Rangers have held the typically powerful Boston offense to just one run in two games.
The Rangers have had their way with the Sox thus far, but third baseman Will Middlebrooks is confident his team will be able to get back in their groove on Sunday and close out the series with a...
This is Norman the Scooter Dog (yes, the name just about says it all), who headlined the Texas Rangers' "Bark in the Park" event on Tuesday against the White Sox.
While the 20-8 start to the regular season is undoubtedly impressive for the Red Sox, many skeptics note that many of the team’s wins have come against the sub-.500 Blue Jays, Rays, Indians, and Astros. In order for these skeptics to become believers, the Sox will have to show that they can compete with the league’s best, starting this weekend in Arlington against the (17...
Tonight starts a 3 game set against the Texas Rangers where Mike Napoli aka Big Napi, aka Hacksaw-courtesy of Dustin Pedroia, returns to his old stadium for the first time as a Boston Red Sox. Napoli began his first 11 seasons of his career with the Angels before being traded to the Rangers in 2011 where his bat came alive and where he believes his career really took off.
