Nathan’s Famous is the first-ever official hot dog of Major League Baseball

Fox Business excerpt -

Nathan’s Famous (NATH) is the first-ever official hot dog of Major League Baseball under a new sponsorship agreement announced Tuesday.

Hot dogs and America’s pastime are inseparable, so it’s only natural for MLB to name an official representative of the stadium favorite. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council has estimated that fans eat approximately 20 million hot dogs at big-league games during a single season. Hot dogs are big business in baseball, and Nathan’s new partnership with MLB gives the hot-dog maker the inside track.

Welcome to Coney, NY Cosmos!

Pix11 excerpt -

It won’t just be the Cosmos coming to Brooklyn; the team will bring more foot traffic to local businesses and jobs.

“It’s more than just about soccer and about fans and about people coming to Coney Island, which is great, it’s about economic development,” said Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Andrew Hoan.

Bringing the Cosmos to Coney Island will call for an increase of jobs, such as concessions and in the stands. Local businesses will also benefit with the crowds coming to see the Cosmos.
