As the 2011 baseball season begins, one thing that is definitely clear. . . the hot dog will once again be an MVP nationwide. The National Hot Dog & Sausage Council predicts that ballparks will serve over 22,000,000 hot dogs and MLB games this season. FYI. . .that’s enough hot dogs to run around the bases 31,160 times).
This figure is an increase of 5% over 2010 figures – the first increase in three years.
The increase in projected consumption is a positive sign that as the economy slowly starts to turn around, people are heading back to the ballpark to watch baseball games.
At our own hometown ballpark, Camden Yards, be sure to try the BIRDLAND DOG. This is new on the menu at Baltimore’s Oriole Park; This consists of a hot dog topped with smoked pit beef, Little Italy pepperoni hash, stewed tomato jam and fried onions in a fresh baked bun!
