Why “Wiener”? 

There are two kinds of people in this city. Those that think “wiener” is just a hot dog, and those that know “wiener” is a foul ball at a Madison Mallards game. What many may not know about a Mallards foul ball is that you can return said ball to the Mallards concessions stand for, you guessed it, a wiener. You’re probably wondering, why would someone surrender their one-of-a-kind, authentic, game used baseball for a wiener? Answer: They don’t.

We’re grateful to the city of Madison for letting us bring you 20 Summers of Wiener and 20 summers of Mallards baseball!

We have a lot of wonderful things planned for this special season and hope you all are excited for it! From nostalgic throwbacks to one-of-a-kind Mallards promotions, we hope to make our 20th Summer, your best summer at the Duck Pond yet!
