The Philadelphia Phillies decided to end their Dollar Dog Night promotion after 27 years. They are replacing it with a BOGO deal, where you can buy one hotdog at the regular price of $5 and get one for free.

The Dollar Dog Night promotion has been popular among Phillies fans. One longtime Phillies fan, Christian McGovern, started a Change.org petition online in hopes the popular hot dog deal will be reinstated.

As of Friday morning, nearly 4,200 people have already signed it, as per report by 6abc.com.

McGovern argues that the tradition was not only affordable but also a symbol of community spirit.

The Phillies organization says the change was made due to food fights, that left a major mess to clean up, and a fan survey, that said the night was not enjoyable in part due to long lines.

This season’s Hatfield Phillies Franks BOGO Nights will be Tuesday, April 2 vs. the Cincinnati Reds, and Tuesday, April 16 vs. the Colorado Rockies. Both games begin at 6:40 p.m.
