Lehigh Valley IronPigs vs. Norfolk Tides
Since debuting in 2008, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs have led Minor League Baseball in per game attendance at Coca-Cola Park with 10,100 capacity and has become the Lehigh Valley’s place for affordable family entertainment.
The IronPigs have quickly built a fun-for-all reputation with their quirky in-game contests and giveaways with every pork pun imaginable, ranging from racing pork product characters, a kid’s piglet race, ketchup and mustard T-shirt launchers, the crazy antics of fan-favorite mascots FeRROUS and FeFe (Fe is the atomic symbol for Iron), and a dancing grounds crew, just to name a few.
Its proximity to Philadelphia is not the only thing that the IronPigs have in common with their parent club, the Philadelphia Phillies. Since the 2008 inaugural season, dozens of IronPigs players have been called up to the Phillies, or have appeared at Coca-Cola Park for an assigned rehab appearance.
The food. Did you know that there are 334 food items available at Coca-Cola Park? That's right, 334! And many of them are bacon related. Right again, bacon.
The jerseys. Red, white, black, and bacon!
