Gearing up for opening day of baseball season, Ball Park ® brand, the maker of great tasting guy food and the official hot dog of the Detroit Tigers, announced today the addition of a tasty new hot dog variety to its product line-up, Ball Park Lean Franks. Setting fans up for a grand slam baseball and grilling season, the introduction of new Lean Franks make it easier for consumers to enjoy the traditional, juicy, bold flavors of Ball Park hot dogs, while keeping an eye on the calorie count.

Arming grill masters with delicious, mouth-watering fare during game day tailgates and all summer long, the new Ball Park Lean Franks are available in two great tasting varieties including Lean Beef, which is made with 100 percent beef, and Lean Pork, made with 100 percent pork. A meaty, juicy, high-quality hot dog, new Lean Franks contain no artificial colors, no artificial flavors and no by-products.

“For most Americans, the kickoff of baseball season signifies the unofficial countdown to summer and the start of grilling season,” said Timothy Smith, Vice President of Marketing, Ball Park Brand. “We created our new Lean Franks to give hot dog lovers a chance to celebrate the start of grilling season without feeling the guilt or sacrificing on taste. With fewer calories and fat, Ball Park Lean Franks gives those looking for a better-for-you hot dog a meaty and great-tasting option to throw on the grill.”

Available in eight count packages, the new Ball Park Lean Beef and Lean Pork Franks can be found in the packaged deli meats section of grocery stores nationwide.
