Phillies Dollar Dog Night Part 2 was a disaster, here’s a few suggestions on how to fix it moving forward
The Philadelphia Phillies have a major problem to handle and it has absolutely nothing to do with the actual baseball team.
Last night was the second Dollar Dog Night of the 2023 season and the lines to grab a few dogs 20 minutes before first pitch were completely insane.
Phillies Dollar Dog Night Lines 20 Minutes Before First Pitch
According to some numbers, Citizens Bank Park sold over 50,000 hot dogs last night, so of course lines are going to be long and basic logistics of getting hot dogs in people’s hands and out of the concourse are going to be a complete mess.
Regardless, but you also can’t tell me there’s not a better way to handle this.
Phillies fans in attendance weren’t happy waiting in lines and not getting to their seats in some cases, until the third inning.
The frustration is warranted and there definitely needs to be a better way to get dogs distributed.
How to Fix Phillies’ Dollar Dog Nights at Citizens Bank Park
- Hot Dog Stands at every aisle entrance.
- A dollar dog is factored into ticket pricing where everyone gets one as they walk into CBP.
- Dollar Dogs being sold in the aisles.
- Whatever. Anything to stop fans roaming the concourse looking for Dollar Dogs.
- Accept cash again. Covid is over. We need cash back to speed up lines.
Or you can go this route, which honestly seems like the best option.
The crowds are significantly bigger this year after last season’s postseason run so it should come as no surprise there are some growing pains when attending Phillies’ games now.
I should also note that I’m a huge fan of throwing hot dogs (although I haven’t done it myself) ONLY if they are staying in the stands. We can’t have hot dogs on the field delaying baseball games like we saw last night.
Again, I don’t really have a problem with throwing dogs. I think it’s hilarious. Just keep them off the field. I’m fully aware that the Phillies are now 0-2 on Dollar Dog Nights this season but keep the dogs in the seats. Let the boys play baseball.
