Minor league baseball team plans Philly Cheesesteak tribute

gallery2-large-1A 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?

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.
