(BaseballStL) – For a limited time only, the St. Louis Cardinals will be selling the largest hot dog in the history of Busch Stadium.
Fans can purchase a two-foot one-pound hot dog in Ford Plaza at the stadium in an effort to celebrate National Hot Dog month. The hot dog comes with a hefty price though -- $26 to be exact.
The hot dog, known as the “Giant Slugger,” can weigh as much as 2.75 pounds with all the fixings (two full cups of chili, nacho cheese, grilled onions and jalapenos). The fixings come with no extra charge to the $26 deal.
The team will sponsor a Giant Slugger Hot Dog eating contest at 5 p.m. in the Ford Plaza on July 4. Contestants will have to finish the hot dog within one hour to potentially win a prize.
