Minor league baseball team to be the ‘Cheesesteaks’ for a game this season

A couple years ago the Lehigh Valley IronPigs introduced us to their bacon-themed uniform set.

The look included bacon striping down the pants and a slice of bacon on the hat, and it made sense given the popularity of bacon and the fact that the team is called the IronPigs.

Well, now the Phillies’ Triple-A team has taken their food theme a different direction.

You may have noticed that there are two different hats in the tweet — one with onions and one without. The team is running a contest via its website for fans to vote on which they prefer. The winner will be the hat that is worn in June.

So, are you #TeamWit or #TeamWitout?


Of course, Philadelphia is known for its cheesesteaks, so the decision to go with this kind of promotion makes sense.

It also makes us hungry.
