The Arizona Diamondbacks will sell you one, but ...
Did you pull out a 10 dollar bill? Keep digging. You put it back and reached for a 20? Sorry, pal, you need both of those to cover it -- or at least a Jackson and Lincoln.
Yeah, it's a $25 [redacted] corndog. Per ESPN's Darren Rovell:
"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 $25 hot dog barrier was first crossed in 2012, when the Texas Rangers unveiled the 2-foot Boomstick. The hot dog smothered in chili, nacho cheese, jalapenos and onions retails for $26. Despite backlash from some fans, the Rangers reportedly sold nearly 20,000 of them in the first season.
Do not buy this corndog. Leave any Diamondbacks game with your self-esteem intact.
