ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - The Rochester Red Wings are changing the International League team’s name for one game to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the creation of the city’s signature dish: “the garbage plate.”

The Minnesota Twins’ Triple-A affiliate is wearing uniforms with the name Plates and a customized logo when it takes the field against the Norfolk Tides on Thursday night.

They’re honoring Alexander Tahou (TAH’-hoh), who during World War I started serving two hot dogs or hamburgers, a heap of home fries and macaroni salad smothered with a meat-based hot sauce, topped with raw onions, mustard and ketchup.

Later dubbed a garbage plate, the dish remains a popular item at his late son Nick’s Rochester restaurant. Nick’s son, Alex Tahou, will receive a special Plates jersey with the number 100 on it.
