Talk about concessions: Arizona Diamondbacks fans will now be able to throw down $25 on an 18-inch deep-fried corn dog at the team’s Chase Field Big Dawgs kiosk. It’s stuffed with bacon and cheese, and comes resting on a bed of fries, with plastic soufflé cups of chipotle ketchup and spicy mustard on the side. The Daily News Twitter-queried the team for the corn dog’s calorie count, and the Diamondbacks replied, presumably in jest, "We’re still counting. Stand by…" But this isn’t even the MLB’s most monstrous dog — that honor, ESPN points out, belongs to the Texas Rangers’ $26, two-foot chili-cheese-slathered "Boomstick."
Still, the gargantuan D-Bat apparently poses enough concern and threat to public safety that the club had a statement prepared specifically for its release, in which team president and CEO Derrick Hall includes this terse disclaimer: "It’s really about sharing with the family."
