ARLINGTON, TX -- In Texas, a couple of the vendors are offering a big deal. Big in both size and price.

At the Texas Ranger's ballpark a hot dog will go on sale this season that is two feet long, weighs one pound, and is just about as big as a baseball bat.

It's called either the "champion hot dog" or "the broomstick" depending on which concession stand you stop by.

Loaded up with cheese, chili and onions.. a truly ravenous fan can gobble one up for a mere $26.

The Rangers say it feeds three to four hungry fans. The hot dog is estimated to have 2,000 or 3,000 calories and if that's not enough, try their 3-pound pretzel.
