Hot Diggity Dog!
Well, it’s been decided.
We are turning the LIVE Kauffman Stadium Hot Dog Derby over to you, the fans.
During “Fan Appreciation Weekend” (Sept. 28-30), nine every-day Royals fans will have the opportunity to compete in the LIVE Hot Dog Derby races. In order to be one of the “Grand Prize Wieners” – yes, “Wieners!” – you have to enter the “Hot Dog Derby Sweepstakes.” Entry forms can be found here, on royals.com. Just give us the basics – name, address, phone number, email, etc. – along with a short description on why you want to don a hot dog suit and race down the first base line. Easy enough, right? You have until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 17 to enter and we’ll announce the “Wieners” on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
Some things to keep in mind:
- You have to be 18 or older to enter – sorry, but the hot dog suits are adult-size only.
- Along with getting to race in one of the three races that weekend, you will also receive four Dugout Box tickets, free hot dogs and a set of Kauffman Stadium Hot Dog Derby Plush Racers!
- You don’t get to decide what “wiener” you race as. On race day, contestants will draw out of a hat what condiment – Ketchup, Mustard or Relish – they will represent.
- More race-day details will be provided once the “Grand Prize Wieners” are announced.
So, submit those entry forms now because we know – from your letters, emails and phone calls – that you want to be a “wiener” at Kauffman Stadium!
