Iron Pigs to Wear Bacon-Themed Uniforms This Season

Thus officially ending the bacon craze, once and for all.

The Phillies’ top farm team, the Iron Pigs, will dress this season in bacon-themed uniforms on Saturdays. 

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.

This seems like a bad idea. Bacon? On the Sabbath? You know bacon is, right?


It's made from slaughtered pigs. They are literally dead meat. Seems an inauspicious omen for a team that surely wants to win games this spring.

Crossing Broad embraces the move:

You can get that bacon cap here. It’s $28 and awesome. AND THEY HAVE A SHIRT THAT SMELLS LIKE BACON.

The Iron Pigs have really, really stepped up their minor league marketing game the past two seasons. From watersports to touching to death, they’ve really beenkilling it lately and have taken over the number one spot in Phillies farm system ridiculousness.
