Baseball is a beloved national pastime that hasn't changed in over a hundred years. But the snacks? Let's just say no one's jumping for that bag of peanuts. In honor of National Hot Dog Day, we've put together some of the most insane hot dogs at MLB stadiums all over the country. Yeah, they're messy, but you'll be using the condensation on your beer cup to wipe your hands anyway, so you might as well indulge in these incredible dogs.
Crab Mac & Cheese Dog at Camden Yards
Baltimore residents love their steamed crab... a lot. So it's no wonder they offer this creamy, crabby hot dog at Oriole Park, piled high with mac n' cheese, lump crab meat and the city's favorite: Old Bay seasoning.
Taco Dog at Marlin Park
Given South Florida's high Hispanic population, the Miami Marlins' taco dog is an homage to its residents, putting a local twist on an American classic. The monster in this photo is a foot-long hot dog wrapped in a grilled tortilla, topped with hearty chili, chipotle sour cream and colorful crunchy tortilla strips.
Cheese Coney at Great American Ball Park
Next time you're at a Reds game, blend in like the locals with this stacked hot dog. The Cheese Coney is blanketed with a layer of Skyline sauce chili -- a Cincinnati favorite with hints of cinnamon and chocolate -- and topped with chopped onions and a mountain of cheese.
Arlington Flamin' Hot Cheetos Dog at Global Life Park
Texans aren't afraid of a little heat. If you're looking for an efficient baseball snack, the folks at the Rangers stadium got your back, sprinkling Flamin' Hot Cheetos on your hot dog, and also blending them in the nacho cheese that's slathered all over it.
Cracker Jack and Mac Dog at PNC Park
Sometimes it's not about new ingredients, but new arrangements. The Cracker Jack and Mac Dog at the Pirates stadium in Pittsburgh is just what it sounds like, a footlong beef dog topped by a mouthwatering mishmash of creamy mac and cheese, salted caramel sauce and deep-fried pickled jalapeños and Cracker Jacks.
Chicken Enchilada Dog at Chase Field
Ball games can take a while, so only eating a foot-long can be dangerous. Because they don't want you to be nutrient-deprived, the Arizona Diamondbacks offer an 18-inch chicken enchilada dog at Chase Field. This culinary innovation comes on a telera roll and gets maxed out with queso blanco, enchilada sauce, pico de gallo, black olives, sour cream and crispy tortilla ribbons for a little crunch, along with every other texture EVER. Is this even a hot dog? Who cares!
