The Arizona Diamondbacks will have an expensive new addition in their lineup this season during home games at Chase Field.
Say hello to the 18-inch D-Bat Dog.
The gigantic corn dog comes stuffed with cheddar cheese, jalapenos and bacon. It will also be served with a side of fries and cost $25.
"This is really about providing our fans with new options each year, and in the case of some of our larger items, it's really about sharing with the family," team president and CEO Derrick Hall told ESPN. "We don't have any expectations for the D-Bat, but we'll look forward to seeing if it becomes popular with our fans. Every night for us is a successful night because we offer the most affordable food prices in all of baseball."
In addition to the D-Bat Dog, guests at Chase Field will also have the chance to buy the new snake-themed Venom Dog. The foot-long habanero sausage will be sold for $10 and come dressed with black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream.

The team already sells the Sonoran Dog, a $7 hot dog wrapped in mesquite-smoked bacon with pico de gallo, beans and mayo.
So true RT @steveseiferheld Fans gripe about concessions $ but buy $25 corn dogs. It's about quality, novelty, value.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) March 18, 2014
