For July 23rd's hot dog, I waited until dinner time. The 23rd day of my mission to eat a hot dog a day in honor of National Hot Dog Month was a hot one- best spent at the beach. That's just what I did too. The evening brought other diversions, like a Cape Cod Baseball League game at Spillane Field in Wareham, Massachusetts. Wareham is the home of the Gatemen; they were playing the Harwich Mariners. I was looking for a hot dog.
This dog looked pretty hot- it was around 90 degrees at game time!
I had a few words with Terry Thompson, pitching coach of the Gatemen.
We had a brief chat while the Gatemen players groomed the field. No prima donnas in this league!
The concession stand menu has everything you'd expect at a baseball game: candy, chips, nachos, meatball subs and HOT DOGS!
The gals in the concession stand were having fun- I think they thought this was a Hollywood movie.
They serve Kayems at Spillane Field- you can get a "regular" or "jumbo." I got the jumbo: a quarter pounder! They serve it to you plain and you dress it up yourself.
I dressed mine all around and...
HAPPY NATIONAL HOT DOG MONTH!
