MLB Fans Will Chomp Down 19 Million Hot Dogs In 2018

According to a survey by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, baseball fans will consume more than 19 million hot dogs and 4.6 million sausages during the upcoming 2018 season. As the Council estimates, the hot dog total alone would reach as high as 5,332 One World Trade Centers—that's pretty darned high. Interestingly, famously disengaged Dodger fans eat the most dogs—projected to be more than 3 million this year. Red Sox fans don't even make the top six in chowing down hot dogs, even though any fair test would designate Fenway Franks as—by far—the best in baseball. There is some consolation in the survey: Boston fans do rank fourth in sausage consumption. Our favorite new offering though has to be the Dilly Dog. Rangers fans will enjoy a dill pickle that is cored out and stuffed with an Angus beef jumbo dog, that’s then battered and fried to a golden brown. Now that's eatin'! No doubt, the Dilly Dog is accompanied best by a Bud Light®. Get it?
