Racing Sausages turn 20


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- 20 years ago, the Racing Sausages were born.

The Bratwurst, Polish and Italian were honored before Thursday's Brewer's game at Miller Park.

Also honored, the man who brought them to life, Michael Dillon.

He threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

"It was a total secret no one knew about, not the players, the umpires. And so when those doors opened up the cartoon ran across the skyline, the doors opened up and we ran in, the place went insane. It was just incredible how crazy it was."

It's grown since then.

The hot dog joined the race in the mid 90's and the chorizo was added in 2007.
