Friday morning, the team unveiled their website, logo and social media accounts. Finally, a baseball team ALL Chicagoans can support! The #ChicagoDogs step up to the plate May 2018! ➡️ https://t.co/5WFVAUHl3npic.twitter.com/WNTdOmr8iJ - The Chicago Dogs (@TheChicagoDogs) July 28, 2017 The team, which will play just outside Chicago in Rosemont, Ill., will open a brand-new stadium in May 2018. Before they take the field, though, the Dogs have to celebrate their creation. They spent Friday morning driving around Chicago in a double-decker bus handing out free hot dogs as well as hosting various team-themed events at Chicago staple The Weiner's Circle. Incredible morning launching Chicago's new minor league baseball team, @TheChicagoDogs, at #WienersCircle & the best is yet to come pic.twitter.com/xIMKVqKQLK - Brian Gainor (@BrianGainor) July 28, 2017 Most importantly, the first Dollar Dog Day of The Chicago Dogs era will take place Friday at The Weiner's Circle from 4 to 7 p.m. There couldn't possibly be a better way to celebrate baseball in Chicago.
