New $26 Ballpark Hot Dog Named For Josh Hamilton

ARLINGTON (AP) - A 2-foot-long bratwurst dubbed the "Great Bratbino'' and selling for $26 will be offered at Rangers Ballpark in honor of Texas slugger Josh Hamilton.

Delaware North Companies Sportservice on Thursday announced plans for its next big gastric delight, on sale May 25 as the Rangers host Toronto.

Spokesman Charles Roberts says the company named the brat as a salute to Hamilton's success.

The former AL MVP hit .467 with two doubles, nine homers and 18 RBIs over seven games. Hamilton, who's on a 16-game hitting streak, was getting a rest and sitting out Thursday's home game with Oakland.

Sportservice last month unveiled a 1-pound, 2-foot-long hot dog at the Ballpark, also going for $26. The bratwurst creation will come with sauerkraut, but can be topped with chili, nacho cheese, grilled onions and jalapenos.
