Rangers sell 191 'Boomstick' hot dogs

4/6/2012

ARLINGTON, Texas -- So how many people are willing to pay $26 for a one-pound hot dog?

Well, 191 on Opening Day.

The nearly two-foot-long dog can weigh nearly two pounds, once you pile on the chili, onions, mustard, ketchup, relish and whatever else you want. And there were a number of fans either attempting to eat the entire hot dog by themselves or sharing the dog with others around them.

The Rangers have a special carrying case for the hot dog, complete with handles, so fans can get it to the seats.

It will be on sale all season and is called the "Boomstick" at concession stands in honor of right fielder Nelson Cruz.
