The RubberDucks on Saturday introduced a new item to its "Extreme Foods" menu, the "Return Of the King Burger," in honor of LeBron James' return to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Northeast Ohio. 

The burger has a four-ounce patty and is topped with Boursin cheese, a king crab meat blend and wine and gold slaw. 

"We're excited to have another great addition to our 'Extreme Foods' lineup," Akron RubberDucks General Manager Jim Pfander said. "Our food and beverage director Brian Manning spent a long time putting together the perfect ingredients to welcome the 'King' back to Akron."

The "Extreme Menu" item will sell for $8.50 and is available at Taters concession stand located behind home plate.
