Phillies Girl Problems: Hatfield Dollar Dog Night

On Tuesday, the Phillies will play the New York Mets at 7:05 PM EST.

While this is a pretty standard NL East matchup, there is a baseball gem hidden within Tuesday’s game that only those lucky enough to attend Citizen’s Bank Park that night will get to experience.

Enter Phillies Girl problems.

While I love where I live out in Scottsdale, and I must admit, I’m a true West Coast girl, there are certain things about not living near my team that just stink.

And one of those things is missing out Hatfield Dollar Dog Night. The Phillies promotional schedule says it all.

“For the first time this season, enjoy delicious dollar dogs while the Phils take on the Mets as Hatfield Phillies Franks Dollar Dog Night returns!”

Why, yes, I WOULD like to enjoy some delicious dollar hot dogs while watching my most favoritest team in the entire world play my most favoritest sport in the entire world.

But I can’t. Because I live in Arizona.

What’s better than going to a ballgame? Going to a ballgame and enjoying some ballpark food. What’s better than going to a ballgame and enjoying some ballpark food? Going to a ballgame and enjoying some CHEAP ballpark food. Especially these days, when enjoying a sporting event with the family involves dipping into the kids’ college funds (not quite, but almost), you simply cannot beat hot dogs for a dollar.

Mets fans attending Tuesday’s game will probably have a field day (see what I did there).  They’re used to shelling out $6.25 for a single hot dog at Citi Field, the most expensive in all of baseball.

That’s 6 Hatfield Dollar Dogs for less than the price of ONE Citi Field dog. If that’s not a hot (dog) deal, I don’t know what is.

So, phellow phans, if you’re attending the Hatfield Dollar Dog game on Tuesday, or at any point this season, keep The Phillies Girl in mind, and eat a hot dog (or four) for me.

Hahahaha I love this. Happy to be of inspiration but sad you are missing it. I’ll have one in your honor :(

I was just in a DC area grocery store and they had a package of Hatfield Phillies phranks in the hot dog section. After staring at them for about 5 minutes, I slowly walked away without buying them. At the time, I was proud of my willpower. However, all I feel now, is ashamed.
