  Business executive, born in London, UK. He emigrated to Ohio in 1882, winning in         
  1887 the first of the baseball park concessions that would launch him as the pre-eminent 
  food concessionaire at America's ballparks, racetracks, and convention centres.           
  In the early 1900s he introduced frankfurters in rolls at the New York Polo               
  Grounds, and became the hot dog king by shifting baseball fare from lemonade             
  and ice-cream to frankfurters, peanuts, and soda. His son Frank M Stevens (1880-1965)     
  continued expanding the business.
