Last baseball season, Hot Doug’s began serving its psychotically-obsessed-over specialty sausages at Wrigley Field. This year, Hot Doug’s will return to Wrigley Field again—though just the bleachers—with a new slate of sausage creations named after Cubs players of yore, the Tribune reports.

The menu will rotate throughout the season, but on this year’s April 11 Opening Day, the Trib reports, fans can choose among dishes such as:

* The Champ Summers, a spicy Polish sausage with beer mustard by Goose Island and fried onions
* The Joe Wallis, a curried bratwurst with dijonnaise, onion and smoked Gouda
* The Barry Foote, a corned-beef "teuben" with Russian dressing, shredded Swiss and sauerkraut

Though technically closed since October 2014, this will be the second time in 2016 that Hot Doug’s makes a triumphant comeback. Back in January, Doug Sohn's sausage emporium hosted a one-day-only pop-up comeback at Publican Quality Meats, eliciting strings of prayer-hands emojis all over Twitter.

Hot Doug's isn't the only noteworthy concession Wrigley Field visitors can enjoy during games. Other additions to the ballpark menu include a new take on chicken and waffles: buffalo chicken and waffle fries, a dish topped with hot sauce and two kinds of cheese.
