Dogman starts his howl at 6 p.m. That’s when Del Christman, minor-league baseball’s most recognizable hot-dog guy, puts on his outfit: white shorts, collar, “Hats Off to Dogman!” T-shirt, and finally the hat — always the hat — complete with dog flaps and a Scooby-Doo doll. “Then I go see the fans and start barking,” he says. “I’m like a cartoon character who’s come to life.”

Del is passionate about the Lowell Spinners, the Class A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. His home? The Dogpound, a wooden shack from which he shouts, “Let’s get ‘em going, baby!” The menu? There’s the Blood Hound (hot dog with ketchup), the Golden Retriever (mustard), and the Mongrel (the works), among others. Truth be told, he’s the most popular person at LeLacheur Park.

Lowell Spinners, LeLacheur Park, 450 Aiken St. 978-459-2255, 978-459-1702 (tickets).
