    Hot Dog

    Dorgan's earliest usage of hot dog

    Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, New York City, New York, U.S.

    However, Dorgan's earliest usage of hot dog was not in reference to a baseball game at the Polo Grounds, but to a bicycle race at Madison Square Garden, in The New York Evening Journal December 12, 1906, by which time the term hot dog in reference to sausage was already in use. In addition, no copy of the apocryphal cartoon has ever been found.
