A minor league baseball team will change its name for a night this summer as a tribute to the Philly Cheesesteak — and you can wear the uniform.
Why? … Why not?
The team is the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Phillies’ Triple-A squad, and it will change its name to the Cheesesteaks for “Salute to Philadelphia Night” on June 10 against the Durham Bulls.
As part of the promotion, fans can already buy shirts, caps, jerseys and socks for the team-for-a-night and there’s a social media campaign where fans will decide which cap the team will wear for the game, a the “Wit” or “Witout” version based on onions as a sandwich ingredient.
Those who visit www.lvcheesesteaks.com can vote for which “team” they support on the cap and can pick up the gear, which ranges from $15 for socks, to $35 for fitted caps or $90 for the jersey.
