PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Pawtucket Red Sox will temporarily become the Hot Wieners in honor of the Rhode Island delicacy.

WJAR-TV reports the baseball team will wear jerseys with the new name, complete with a new logo featuring a dog in a flaming bun, during their game against the Durham Bulls Aug. 16.

PawSox representative Rob Crain says the hot wiener “all the way” is a “taste of Rhode Island,” and he hopes residents will enjoy the chance to have a little fun during the game.

Merchandise bearing the new name and logo is currently available online.

The hot wiener, or New York System wiener, is a hot dog made with veal and pork and traditionally topped with celery salt, mustard, chopped onions and a meat sauce.
