A ballpark tradition in Philadelphia is going going gone


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A ballpark tradition in Philadelphia is going, going, and it's gone. The Phillies have ended Dollar Dog Nights. The team is responding to a game last April. Fans threw $1 hot dogs at each other throughout the stadium. It's tempting when they're that cheap, so the laws of supply and demand take charge. The price goes up, though the Phillies offered a new promotion, two hot dogs for the price of one - one to eat, one to throw. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
