TEAMS: Texas Rangers
In lyrics for the song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” fans ask for some peanuts and Cracker Jack. Now those attending Texas Ranger games, this season, can request a 26-dollar hot dog. According to NBC affiliate KXAS, the menu item is two feet long, weighs one pound, and is just about as big as a baseball bat. Depending on which concession stand you purchase it from, the item is called either the “champion hot dog” or “the broomstick”. Add ons for the humongous hot dog include cheese, chili and onions. The sports team says it can feed between 3 and 4 hungry fans.
