Everything is better with Ukee Washington.
The Minor Leagues is where the sport of baseball goes to have fun. Some teams have ridiculous names (the Biscuits, the Tourists), a bunch end up having theme nights with special unis, and the Iron Pigs are changing their whole team name for one game.
On June 10th, for Salute to Philadelphia night, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs will become the Lehigh Valley Cheesesteaks. GM Kurt Landes punned his way into an explanation:
Today, we’ve officially raised the Steaks. As a Phillies affiliate, we can’t wait to celebrate all things Philadelphia, including the iconic cheesesteak on ‘Salute to Philadelphia Night.
You can already get merch from the
Iron Pi … Cheesesteaks, and vote whether the hat logo they wear for the game will be wit’ or witout. As a strictly wit’ man, I have to admit the witout logo just looks cleaner.
