In-game entertainment: Orioles Esskay Hot Dog race

The Orioles stage the nightly Esskay Hot Dog Race between innings at Camden Yards, much to the delight of fans who have run out of money for concessions. The competition pits speedy frankfurters named Mustard, Ketchup and Relish in a race around the bases. Betting is frowned upon, but if you must have action to enjoy the race, keep in mind that Ketchup likes to come from behind.
