Well, hot dog. That's a lot of dogs — and sausages. 

This year, baseball fans will snack on 18.3 million hot dogs and nearly 4 million sausages at Major League Baseball ballparks, according to a survey by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (yes, apparently that exists). 

Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles is projected to sell the most hot dogs at a single park, possibly handing over 2.7 million this year. The runner-up, the Chicago Cubs' Wrigley Field, is projected to sell 1.2 million hot dogs. 

But you won't find your average gas station hot dog at these ballparks. For baseball season, hot dogs become an event. 

The Arizona Diamondbacks have three dogs inspired by Sports Illustrated this year, including the "All Day Breakfast Dog," featuring hash browns, country gravy, cheddar cheese, bacon, fried eggs hot sauce and green onion onto an 18-inch (!) hot dog. Not to be outdone, the Minnesota Twins' have the "Boomstick" at Target Field — a 2-foot-long "beast" covered in chili, nacho cheese, grilled onions and jalapeños. 

If you're a baseball or hot dog fan, you can check out the council's MLB Hot Dog & Sausage Guide to see more over-the-top MVPs of baseball season. 

Prepare your stomach if you're headed out to seemingly any ballpark this year. Or at least grab a plain hot dog for the principle of the thing.
