The Great American 4th of July tradition of the hot dog eating contest once again comes to Safeco Field. Kevin Shockey took home the first annual chowdown trophy last year. New challengers have emerged in 2012, including the one they call Kobayashi. Who do you think will win the ultimate bragging rights, as well as a $1,000 check for the charity of their choice? Who will win this year's hot dog chowdown?
The hot dog chowdown will take place on Wednesday at 12:40 p.m., prior to the Mariners 1:10 game vs. Orioles. You won't want to miss this, so get your tickets and get here early.
