Over the last four games at Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers, fans have already spent more than $25,000 on pickle-stuffed corn dogs.
The infamous new concession, known as a Dilly Dog, has been purchased at least 2,500 times over the course of the Rangers four-game opening series against the Houston Astros, according to WFAA. Apparently, the Dilly Dog has been so popular that it’s inspired lengthy lines outside the sole stand offering the snack. “We have been overwhelmed at the demand for the Dilly Dogs by fans at Globe Life Park,” Sportservice Arlington General Manager Casey Rapp said in a statement.
In fact, it was so popular that Globe Life Park was forced to expand the Dilly Dog to a second stand after initially only offering it at one concession stand, a spot called State Fare. The new stand, located near Section 9, will begin frying up the Dilly Dog on Friday, when the Rangers take on the Toronto Blue Jays.
However the rest of this season turns out for the Rangers, one thing’s already for sure — the Dilly Dog is the sleeper hit of the season.
