July is almost over, but there are still a few days left to celebrate National Hot Dog Month. And that’s what members of Congress and staffers did Wednesday afternoon.

The American Meat Institute hosted its annual luncheon on Capitol Hill to celebrate the hot dog. America’s national pastime was celebrated, as well. Retired Major League Baseball stars, “Whitey” Herzog, Mickey Lolich and Felix Millán signed autographs for Washington lawmakers, staffers and other guests at the lunch.
