Get to know your Racing Sausages
MILWAUKEE - There are certain things you just don't want to miss at Miller Park, and this year more than ever, the highlight of the sixth inning will be the racing sausages. Here is a guide to help you get to know your Klements Racing Sausages a little bit better.
"Brat" (a.k.a. Bratwurst) comes to the Brewers after training for the German Olympic team. His determination to win usually gives him the fast start, but he tends to get winded at the end.
"Polish Sausage" coached a cross country high school team. To many, he's the underdog. But while he may hang back at the start, he always finishes strong.
Then there's "Italian Sausage". You may remember, he went "missing" during a snowstorm earlier this year, and was found in a Cedarburg bar. He's definitely the suave one of the bunch and can work a crowd.
"Hot Dog" is the all-American favorite, and a total crowd-pleaser. He trains hard with his relatives: Cheese Dog, Chili Dog and Corn Dog.
"Chorizo" came to Milwaukee after training in the hills of central Mexico. He once ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, and is a spicy competitor.
The racing sausages hit the track right before the Brewers got up to bat in the middle of the Sixth Inning. Brat won the race, coming out on top by a casing, and barely defeating Chorizo.
The Italian Sausage won the race 21 times last season, followed by Chorizo with 20 wins.
