A Fun look at the Traditions that make Nathan’s Famous the Perfect Choice for the Official Hot Dog of America’s Pastime!

In 1893, sausages became standard fare at baseball parks. This tradition is believed to have been started by a St. Louis bar Owner, Chris Von de Ahe, a German Immigrant who also owned the St. Louis Browns major league baseball team. Fast forward a few years, and it was 101 years ago that Nathan’s Famous sold their first hot dogs on the boardwalk in Coney Island. That’s a lot of history.
