Columbus Clippers start 2023 season with Dime-A-Dog Night

COLUMBUS, Ohio — While you can always grab peanuts and cracker jackets, Huntington Park is the only place you can grab a hot dog for just a dime. 

Ken Schnacke, who serves as the general manager for the team, has always wanted the Clippers stadium to be a place for families. Affordability has always been a top priority for the team since its start 47 years ago.

“It’s a good value for families to feel comfortable that they can come out and afford a night with the clippers,” said Schnacke. 

While ticket prices have risen over time, fans can always count on the Tansky Tuesday Dime-A-Dog Night. Fans are able to grab a hot dog for just 10 cents during every Tuesday home game.

The stadium partners with its sponsors to be able to keep the hotdogs a dime year after year.

“I challenge Levy Restaurants, our concessionaire, to not go someplace else and see the same sized portion for less money than what it is in Huntington Park,” said Schnacke. “I think that's another staple and a rule we try to follow. So our sponsors are really good. We try to try to ease through pricing.”

On average, the stadium sells between 15,000 and 20,000 hot dogs on Dime-A-Dog Nights. They set their record when the Clippers played their last game at Cooper Stadium in 2008.

“We had 16,000 people in the house and we thought we got to go out with a dime dog night,” said Schnacke. “We sold 48,000 hot dogs.”

Schnacke said that the main goal is to provide a place for families to connect and make memories.
