Smells like team spirit: Minor-league club unveils bacon hats, scratch-and-sniff shirts

What will they think of next?

Everything is better with bacon: pancakes, burgers, vegetables, clothing …

Yeah, that’s right. Clothing.  

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, revealed new bacon-themed uniforms Monday at www.smellthechange.com. These delicious new uniforms will not replace the team’€™s primary uniforms, but will rather be a side dish that the team will wear on Saturdays.

The uniforms feature a bacon-strip logo on the cap, "€œPigs"€ across the chest underlined in bacon, and bacon piping down the legs of the pants.

And that’€™s not all. The team’€™s online store also is offering "€œscratch-and-sniff" T-shirts that actually smell like bacon. Apparently the shirt will smell for up to 10 to 15 washes, so wash sparingly.

Mmm … bacon …
