The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs think baseball and bacon are a perfect combination.
At every Saturday home game this year, the Philadelphia Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate will wear red jerseys with a “Pigs” logo, underlined with a strip of bacon. The cap logo will be a strip of bacon. And the pants will also be “bacon-enriched,” the first in baseball to feature a logo design within the piping.
Fans who just can’t get enough bacon will also be able to purchase “scratch & sniff” t-shirts from the team’s gift shop that are based on the new design. For more information, visit http://smellthechange.com/.
If we were anywhere near April 1st, I would not be posting this – I’d think it was an April Fool’s Day item. But maybe I’m just no fun – what do you think of the Iron Pigs’ new bacon-inspired uniform?
