Phillies AAA Franchise Gets Bacon Hats, Selling Scratch N’ Sniff Bacon Shirts


Iron Pigs Hats Unis

We’ve mentioned the Lehigh Valley (Pa.) IronPigs several times previously on BC. You might remember the gamification of peeing and their funeral and foam finger giveaways. The Phillies’ Triple-A franchise obviously embraces oddness to stay competitive in an area with a lot of sports options.

After a week of teasing with #smellthechange on social media, the IronPigs announced on Monday that the team will wear a steel-themed uniform for Friday home games, a bacon-themed uniform for Saturday home games and a liberty-themed uniform for Sunday home games.

Wait, bacon? Yes, bacon, lots of it, via the Morning Call:

The “Smell The Change” initiative is brought to life in the IronPigs brand-new bacon-themed Saturday ensemble, which includes a bacon strip logo transfixed to the cap, a fresh “Pigs” jersey design emblazoned across the chest as well as the first-of-its-kind bacon-style piping down both legs of the pants.

There is also a scratch n’ sniff bacon t-shirt available for purchase on the team’s MiLB page. The smell of the shirt does fade after 10-15 washings (or lickings).

If the IronPigs are also selling cups of bacon at the games, count us in for at least two Saturday games this season.
