Nobody celebrates National Hot Dog Day like baseball fans

Hot dogs have always held an important role when taking in America's pastime, akin to the seventh-inning stretch or catching a foul ball with a baby in your hands. So, let's take a look at how ballparks around the country celebrated this momentous occasion.
