ESPN: Diamondbacks Offering Churro Dog

For the foodies:

The Arizona Diamondbacks will try to top the success of last year’s 18-inch bacon-and-cheese-stuffed corn dog by offering a dessert. Team president and CEO Derrick Hall told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the team’s star concession item this year will be a Churro Dog.

The Churro Dog is a warm cinnamon churro sitting inside a Long John chocolate-glazed donut, which is then topped with frozen yogurt, caramel and chocolate sauces. Its estimated calorie count is 1,117.

“We’ve found that desserts work really well in the heat we have here,” Hall said. So team chef Michael Snoke got together a focus group of eaters and tested out his Churro Dog idea, and it was immediately loved.

The item, which will be available at two stands on the main concourse at Chase Field, will cost $8.50.
.  .  .
Last year’s specialty, the D-Bat Dog, a huge corn dog that came with a side of fries, cost $25. Despite the price, the team sold 9,517 of them last year. The team will offer the item again this year, Hall said.

Did we get a Primate review on the D-Bat Dog?

Arizona Republic: Diamondbacks Ink Billion Dollar TV Deal

MLB is awash in dough:

The Diamondbacks became the latest team to cash in on baseball’s exploding local television market, agreeing to remain with Fox Sports Arizona under a contract that’s believed to be worth in excess of $1 billion. Sources would not provide details of the agreement, such as specific financial terms or even the length of the contract, but there are indications the deal is in line with expectations based on previous comments from club officials.

For months, team officials have said the club was discussing 15- and 20-year contracts and that a new deal would at least triple the annual value of the team’s previous agreement, which was set to run through this season. The previous deal is reportedly worth $31 million annually, which means even a 15-year deal would be valued at close to $1.4 billion if the club takes in three times as much per year.  .  . Nearly a third of major league teams have signed deals worth more than $1 billion since the Texas Rangers agreed to a 20-year, $1.7 billion deal in 2010.
