Hillcats host Hot Dog Eating Contest


25 Hot Dogs in 5 Minutes! Could you do it?

The Lynchburg Hillcats hosted their own hot dog eating contest before the first pitch on Thursday.

The four contestants had five minutes to devour 25 hot dogs and buns. It was a fierce competition, but Alex Thomas came away with the victory.

Thomas ate 12 and a half hot dogs and buns in five minutes. He received a free t-shirt and certificate after the competition.

“I just wanted to keep a steady pace,” said Alex Thomas. “I’ve done a few competitions before and I know that you don’t want to stuff your mouth too full and not be able to swallow.”

“It always feels good they were some pretty good hot dogs, I was really glad.”

“It was just a matter of just wanting a personal best. It really wasn’t so much about winning the competition I just wanted to see what I could do.”
