MLB Ballpark’s Ridiculous $26 Hot Dog

March 24, 2012 by staff 

MLB Ballpark’s Ridiculous $26 Hot Dog, The Fenway Frank and Dodger Dog need to make some room because there is a new champion coming this season.

The “Champion Dog” at Rangers Ballpark measures nearly two feet long and weighs a pound, before any toppings are added. The all-beef frank includes a mountain of shredded cheese, chili and sautéed onions. The meal comes with a pile of fries and is designed for four people. At $26, it has a price tag to match too.

Shawn Mattox, Sportservice general manager, which handles concessions for the park, was looking for an item that had the “wow” factor.

“We just thought a one-pound hot dog would be a fun thing to do, more so for the look,” he said. “Hopefully people will enjoy it. Everything is bigger in Texas, including the hot dogs!”

This isn’t the first over-sized food ploy by the Rangers to try to get fans attention. Last year they offered a three-pound pretzel. This year, they’re setting their sights on the one item synonymous with watching a baseball game. Hot dogs are the No. 1 seller at MLB stadiums and more than 25 million are consumed at games each year.
