ALLENTOWN -- The Lehigh Valley IronPigs and RailRiders rival launched their new uniform designs for the 2014 season and the one attracting the most attention, features bacon. That's right, bacon.
"The bacon-themed Saturday ensemble includes a bacon strip logo on 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. Similar to years past, the Saturday top is Brick Red but now includes the endearing term, ‘’Pigs” across the chest with a wavy bacon underline. The bold new bacon strip logo sits atop a two-tone cap featuring the familiar colors of IronPigs Steel and Furnace Blue," according to the team's aptly named site, smellthechange.com
Word of the new uniform design quickly spread on social media and for the most part, IronPigs fans can't wait to get a taste of the new uniforms.
The new gear doesn't have all IronPigs lining up at the team store just yet, however.
