Always a fan favorite, the second and final 50-Cent Hot Dog of the 2009 season was a huge success once again. In fact, it was record-breaking. With a season-high 11,010 fans in the stands, 37,669 hot dogs were consumed trumping the old record of 35,468 set back on June 11, 2003.

That means that each fan averaged 3.4 hot dogs each, a number that Nathan's hot dog eating champs Takeru Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut would be proud of.
