(CBS) In honor of National Hot Dog and Sausage Month, the White Sox have introduced the “Giant Slugger” hot dog at U.S. Cellular Field.
On July 4, the one pound, two-foot-long Giant Slugger will be featured in a hot dog eating competition, prior to the game vs. Texas at 6:10 p.m. Fans looking to participate in the competition, which features a grand prize of four suite tickets, a customized jersey and an autographed baseball should tweet @WhiteSox, using the hashtag #GiantSlugger.
Created to serve as many as four people, the Giant Slugger is composed of Vienna Beef and topped with nacho cheese, chili, grilled onions, and jalapenos – served in a 22-inch potato bun. White Sox fans can look for the Giant Slugger at portable hot dog stands near sections 109 and 538 for $26.
The current individual record for consuming a Giant Slugger stands at 19 minutes – a time set at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington during a duel between two of the region’s media outlets.
