You always get a special kick on Opening Day, no matter how many you go through. You look forward to it like a birthday party when you're a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen.
Dogs 'n' suds
According to the The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, fans ate 21,357,316 hot dogs and 5,508,887 sausages during the 2014 Major League season, enough hot dogs to stretch from Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles to Wrigley Field in Chicago. It wasn't until this year that baseball chose its official hot dog, Nathan's Famous.
Your classic hot dog needs the perfect pairing and the traditional "go-with" is, of course, beer. Make sure you are never without a frosty brew on game day with a Craft Beer Club and get 12 beers in each monthly shipment delivered right to your door.
