For half the winter, Aramark and the Phillies developed a signature hot dog to be served this season at Citizens Bank Park. (See story.)

Three possibilities were put up to a public vote, and the South Philly Dog – a roast pork-like sandwich topped with broccoli rabe, spicy roast peppers and sharp provolone cheese on an Italian roll – was the wiener, announced around opening day.

The South Philly Dog is being served at the ballpark.

Now, Aramark will call up the second-place entrant to be served starting with Tuesday's game against the Indians. It's the Citizens Bank Park Summer Dog – topped with cucumbers, pickled onion salsa and ancho pepper sauce on a pretzel roll. (Frankly, I thought this one was the tastiest.)

Both hot dogs ($5.75 a pop) will be available at the Hatfield Grill stand behind Section 125.
