The Great Bratbino: A One-Pound Brat in Honor of the Rangers' Josh Hamilton

The Texas Rangers announced yesterday that soon you'll be able to upgrade that Boomstick dog to a combo meal, which includes two one-liter bottles of Coke.

And, in fairness, since Nellie got a hot dog in honor of his hot bat, Joshie gets one too: The Great Bratbino.

John Blake with the Rangers tells us that the two-foot-long, one-pound bratwurst will come standard with sauerkraut but can be topped with chili, nacho cheese, grilled onions and jalapenos (or all of those?) much the same as the Boomstick.

Scout out sections 16, 42, 326 or the Captain Morgan Club for both the Boomstick and The Great Bratbino.

The Bratbino will make it debut during the next homestand, May 25, when the boys play the Blue Jays. Wait, Toronto still has a team?
