Phillies announce an end to Dollar Dog Night, new $5 BOGO hot dog promotion

Philadelphia Phillies replace Dollar Dog Night with BOGO promotion

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The Philadelphia Phillies made an un-Costco-like move Thursday announcing a new promotion that seems to be replacing the Hatfield Dollar Dog Night that's been a staple of Phillies baseball for the past 27 years.

"There's also fans that communicate directly with the club and it was not a good experience for our fans who came to the games last year. That's the bottom line," John Weber, the Phillies vice president of ticketing said. "It just will be a better experience for fans. That's our goal and that's why we're making this slight change."

The Phillies broke Twitter/X on Thursday with their announcement of the promotional nights for the 2024 season that was missing the $1 hot dog deal. In its place will be two Hatfield Phillies Franks BOGO Nights where fans can get two hot dogs for the price of one ($5) at Citizens Bank Park.

In other words, "dollar dog night is now $2.50 dog night. i can't do this.," X user @JeffMcDev posted.

Democratic Sen. Bob Casey wasn't burning any bridges with the team despite the news.

Casey previously said he was "standing by" after a employee said he was "getting to the bottom" of no Dollar Dog Night dates being on the Phillies' schedule. 

But once the news was announced, Casey quote-tweeted (quote-posted) the Phillies and said "double [hot dog emojis] sounds like a great way to fuel up for #RedOctober."

"BOGO? Y'all are some BOZOS," another user posted. Others called for the swift return of dollar dogs, and some just posted "boo" with various numbers of Os.
