Arizona Diamondbacks unveil special corn dog for Randy Johnson

Sunday August 9th, 2015

Randy Johnson has been racking up the honors after retiring from 22 seasons in the MLB in 2010. 

The hard-throwing, lefthanded pitcher threw out some ceremonial first pitches, entered the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame, was inducted into the (actual) Hall of Fame last month and had his jersey retired by the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday night.

His latest honor, also courtesy of the Diamondbacks, is arguably the best one yet. Shortly after hanging up his jersey, Arizona unveiled a special, 51-inch "D-bat dog" for Johnson. 

You haven't truly made it as a person until you've had a monstrous food item prepared specifically for you. It's too late to add this cheddar-jalapeno-and-bacon stuffed corn dog to Johnson's Hall of Fame plaque, but it will live forever right here:
