When the weather is this nice I can't help but wish that the Spokane Indians Baseball season was not a member of the short season. I want the boys of summer playing now. I wish I could head out to Avista Stadium this evening for the sights and the sounds and of course the hot dogs! When it comes to the big dog of the dogs, Dodger Stadium is expected to sell the most hot dogs this year.
A new survey from the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council - yes there is such a thing - shows that fans attending games at Dodger Stadium will eat the most hot dogs this year. Projected sales at the L.A. ballpark are set at two-million-475-thousand for the 2013 season. Ranking second is the Boston Red Sox, who are expected to see hot dog sales of one-point-five-million at Fenway Park. Crowds at Texas Rangers games, who last year consumed the most hot dogs last year, are expected to down one-million-332-thousand-668 dogs in 2013, while the Detroit Tigers are looking forward to estimated hot dog sales of one-point-three-million. Yankee Stadium rounds out the top five, with fans expected to eat one-million hot dogs during Yankees' games this year. Overall, an estimated 20-million-421-thousand-361 hot dogs are expected to be sold over the course of the baseball season. That's enough hot dogs to circle the bases 28-thousand-113 times.
While I will be at Safeco cosuming one soon, my countdown is on for June 14th. Opening day for the Indians and a ball park dog for me.
