A big part of the experience of the ball park is the characters (the non-mascot kind) like this guy (see below). I don’t know the bit, but I do know that I’d buy a hot dog from him and I’ll remember the experience.
As a kid I remember going to baseball game and the characters like Wally the Beerman (Free Wally) were a big part of experience. A good reminder that the people make the memories.
So hats off to the guy in the hot dog costume making hot dogs and memorable vendors everywhere.
Here’s also hoping they wash that thing every so often.
#HotDogBenny is back.
