There are a lot of things that are “baseball.” We’re talking the smell of fresh shale, a gorgeous sunny day, the beautiful sound that is the crack of a bat, overweight athletes making $20 million a season, singing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game,” chewing tobacco and bubble gum, and amazing $12 hot dogs that are covered in mustard that spills all over your shirt when you happily stuff your face making you look like an absolute mess.

Well baseball fans are in for a treat this year, especially those that love that last point. The Arizona Diamondbacks will be serving a $25 “D-bat dog” at games this season. The “D-bat dogs” are an 18″ inch long corn dog and filled with cheddar cheese, bacon, and jalapeno peppers. It also comes with a side of french fries.
You done well America.
“This is really about providing our fans with new options each year, and in the case of some of our larger items, it’s really about sharing with the family,” team president and CEO Derrick Hall said. “We don’t have any expectations for the D-Bat, but we’ll look forward to seeing if it becomes popular with our fans. Every night for us is a successful night because we offer the most affordable food prices in all of baseball.”
The Diamondback’s are also selling a “Venom Dog” which is a “footlong Habanero sausage topped with black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream” that’ll run you $10.
If you’re still craving but looking for something smaller, they also offer a “Sonoran Dog” for $7 which is s a hot dog wrapped in mesquite-smoked bacon with pico, beans and mayo for toppings
The D-backs aren’t the first to offer a $25 hot dog though. The Texas Rangers did it in 2012 with the 2-foot “Boomstick,” which came smothered in chili, nacho cheese, jalapeno peppers, onions and sold for $26.
This author’s take? I want it. All of it. I want it all now. Like right now now. I am planning a trip to Phoenix now just for this. I can’t even. I am petitioning Rexall Place to bring these in. I need these in my life or it is not complete.
