Babe Ruth: Legendary Player, Legendary Hot Dog Eater

If you’re a Yankees fan, you’re more than likely quite familiar with George Herman Ruth Jr., better known to his friends and fans as “Babe” Ruth. The legendary baseball player achieved the height of his fame as the outfielder for the New York Yankees, achieving some impressive MLB records including more than 700 home runs and a slugging percentage of .690, the latter of which, decades later, has yet to be broken. Today, Babe Ruth is largely regarded as the greatest baseball player of all time.

Besides his incredible skills as a baseball player, Babe Ruth also became known for his impressive eating skills, being something of an unofficial competitive eater. He was reportedly able to chow down on dozens of hot dogs in a single sitting. In fact, Babe Ruth’s grave over in Hawthorne frequently has longtime Yankees leaving him hot dogs.

While there is no concrete evidence or mention as to whether Babe Ruth preferred to eat dozens of Feltman’s hot dogs, the fact that he was such a fan of them speaks volumes about just how satisfying a well-prepared hot dog can be. If you haven’t discovered yet why Feltman’s continues to earn such praise and is regarded by many as the best hot dog they’ve ever tried, we invite you to visit Coney Island and try one. We think Babe Ruth would absolutely love them.

This update is by Feltman’s of Coney Island Hot Dogs, a symbol of American tradition and quality for decades and the proud maker of the first hot dog originally founded by its namesake Charles Feltman, the inventor of the hot dog. Feltman’s hot dogs are free of nitrates and artificial ingredients, using all natural beef to create an experience that explodes with incredible, original flavor. For more information, please visit our location in Brooklyn to try what many say are the most delicious hot dogs they have ever tasted.
