(Fort Mill, SC) - The Charlotte Knights and Ovations Food Services have been recognized by My Carolina Town Magazine for having the "Best Hot Dog" in the Fort Mill, Rock Hill, Tega Cay, and Charlotte areas, as announced today. My Carolina Town's Second Annual "Where It's At" contest received over 36,000 votes in all and featured a number of categories ranging from "Best Restaurant" to "Best New Business" to "Best Hot Dog". The team received a certificate of recognition signed by Christa Franse, Publisher of My Carolina Town Magazine.

"Knights Stadium has been serving delicious hot dogs since it opened in 1990 and we will continue that trend during the final season in 2013," exclaimed Scott Brown, General Manager of Baseball Operations for the Charlotte Knights. "Fans can get their first taste this year of the area's 'Best Hot Dog' on Opening Night, April 11th."

Ovations' Everything's Fresh™ concept ensures that hot dogs are grilled fresh, and placed in a bun just before being handed to customers. Fans at the ballpark can choose from hot dog baskets served with a choice of French Fries or fresh "Dragon Chips," which are fried potato chips tossed with ranch seasoning. The Jumbo topped hot dog includes toppings such as coleslaw, barbeque sauce, cheese or chili. Ovations' commitment to freshness, along with the use of high quality ingredients helped secure the "Best Hot Dog" distinction.

Every Monday at Knights Stadium this season, fans can expect delicious $1 hot dogs, courtesy of Hebrew National. Hot Dogs, along with other great ballpark fare, are served at all 72 Knights games each season.

"We put a lot of emphasis on fresh quality product and it is great to be recognized by our fans," said Ovations Food Services General Manager Erik Hassy.
