Hot Dog! The 2009 MLB Season Cuts The Mustard

April 2, 2009: Sports fans this week are thinking baseball, hot dogs and apple pie - with emphasis on HOT DOGS if you listen to the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council in Washington, D.C., which said nearly 22 million hot dogs will be served this season. According to a new survey from NHDSC, Major League Baseball stadiums will serve 21,733,839 hot dogs this season, a new single-season record and far surpassing other offerings that fans can consume. Topping the list will be Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, which is projected to serve more than 1.5 million dogs in 2009. Second will be Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, where Phillies' fans will fetch 1.25 million dogs. Third place in this year's survey goes to Dodger Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, with 1.2 million Dodger Dogs expected to be eaten. The Milwaukee Brewers' Miller Park will serve 430,000 sausages and, according to the NHDSC, is the only MLB stadium where sausages outsell hot dogs. "There's no question that hot dogs hit a grand slam year after year," Tom Super, NHDSC spokesman, said in a statement. "The connection and nostalgia between hot dogs and baseball has been around for over a century. After all, hot dogs were Babe Ruth's performance enhancing drug of choice." The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council was founded in 1994 as a project of the American Meat Institute and is funded by contributions from hot dog and sausage manufacturers and those who supply them with equipment, ingredients and services.

Hot dogs you'll find in 2009 at MLB ballparks, per NHDSC:

• Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves, dresses their Georgia Dog with coleslaw, chili and onion relish.
• Dolphin Stadium, home of the Florida Marlins, stocks its condiment carts with banana peppers.
• The Tampa Bay Rays' Tropicana Field offers "The Heater," which is served with spicy chili and shredded cheddar.
• Arizona Diamondback's Chase Field has a specialty concession stand called "Big Dawgs," which features five foot-long specialty hot dogs including the Arizona Dog with chorizo, cheese and tortilla chips
• The Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Twins, offers the "Dome Dog," a black angus dog served hot off the grill with toppings made fresh daily.
• Boston's Fenway Frank serves hot dogs on a New England style bun (split from the top) and topped with a choice of mustard and relish.
• L.A.'s Dodger Stadium offers a foot-long pork frankfurter is served grilled or steamed, on a steamed bun, with mustard and relish and choice of toppings.
