Twins pick Schweigerts to make Target Field hot dogs
Minneapolis (AP) — What's old is new again at the Minnesota Twins new ballpark.
The team said Monday it will offer four different hot dogs at Target Field, including one that will taste familiar to old-timers who remember Metropolitan Stadium: the Original Twins Dog.
The team says it's made from the same recipe as the hot dogs served at the Twins' original stadium.
The popular Dome Dogs that ruled the Metrodome will be replaced with the Twins Big Dog.
Schweigert Meats, a subsidiary of Cargill Inc., will make both of those, plus the Dugout Dog in a natural casing and the extra-long Dinger Dog.
Schweigert's Minnesota roots date back to 1937.
