It's Baseball's Opening Day and The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council estimates that fans will eat a whopping 21,357,316 hot dogs and over 5-1/2 million sausages during the 2014 Major League season.  Dodger dog digestion is expected to surpass the three million mark this season in LA.  Also of note - Milwaukee isn't #1 for projected sausage consumption.
