The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are enjoying wild success with their new alternate uniforms, which feature a slice of bacon on their caps and a bacon pinstripe down the sides of their pants.
America loves baseball, and America loves bacon.
Their new uniform campaign has resulted in huge sales, with over 3,000 merchandise purchases since Feb. 24.
For a Major League team, that wouldn't be all that impressive. But for a minor league team, that's like hitting the jackpot.
The IronPigs are the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Philles, and they've consistently been among the leaders in merchandise sales for minor league teams, but this one takes the bacon.
Nice job by the IronPigs. I might have to grab a bacon hat for myself at some point.
