Phillies Triple-A Affiliate to Get Cheesy

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are about to get a little, ummm…cheesy.

For one night only, the Phillies Triple-A affiliate will change their name, uniform, etc. to the Cheesesteaks. During their June 10 game against the Durham Bulls, the IronPigs Cheesesteaks will don black jerseys with the word “Steaks” emblazoned across the front chest in “Cheese Wiz yellow”.

“Today, we’ve officially raised the Steaks,” IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes said. “As a Phillies affiliate, we can’t wait to celebrate all things Philadelphia, including the iconic cheesesteak on ‘Salute to Philadelphia Night.'”

But here’s the best part…fans will have a say in what cap the team wears on the field. Lehigh Valley faithful are asked to vote whether or not the steak sandwich logo will be “Wit” onions or “Witout”.

Makes me hungry just thinking about it.
