Baseball and Bacon — 2 Great Tastes That Go Great Together
Move over San Diego Chicken, The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs now have the best mascot in baseball. This spring, the Philadelphia Phillies Triple-A affiliate will take the field in bacon ballcaps. Sadly, the caps aren't actually made out of bacon. Instead, each cap features the image of a big juicy bacon strip.
The team unveiled new uniforms today, along with the slogan "Smell the Change". The Ironpigs say they will wear the bacon caps every Saturday night during the 2014 season. The organization is no stranger to creative promotions and contest. Last year, they added video games to the urinals in the men's restrooms.
