Dodgers News: Pink’s Hot Dogs Stand Goes Blue For World Series
Pink’s Hot Dogs

As the Los Angeles Dodgers tore their way through the regular season, anticipation within the fan base and city over what could be ahead began to steadily build. A historic losing skid cast some doubt, but the Dodgers picked back up and now are in the World Series.

Their berth in the Fall Classic is a first for the franchise since 1988. They’d knocked on the door — reaching the National League Championship Series four times prior to this year — within the past decade.

With their deepest roster yet, a fifth appearance in the NLCS and rematch with the Chicago Cubs went in the Dodgers’ favor. They’re now facing the Houston Astros, who are in the World Series for a second time in their franchise history.

Los Angeles has been in a fever pitch since Game 5 of the NLCS went final, and the support has extended to the Pink’s Hot Dogs stand in Hollywood breaking from tradition to go blue:

It’s the first time in 78 years the landmark has changed its colors. Coinciding with the effort is the introduction of “Blue Hots.” It’s a hot dog wrapped in bacon, topped with cheese and Pink’s famous chili.

The 113th World Series begins with Game 1 on Tuesday. Dodger Stadium will also host Game 2, on Wednesday, before the series shifts to Minute Maid Park for Games 3 and 4, and if necessary, a Game 5.

Those contests will be played Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The complete 2017 World Series TV schedule and start times can be viewed here.
