The Scouting Report
At the beginning of May, the six teams in the International League's North Division are all clustered tightly around a .500 record, each vying to gain some separation from the pack. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs look to improve upon the 40-32 home record posted last season. Last summer's overall wins and losses came to exactly .500—70-70—preventing an appearance in the postseason. This year the squad hopes to extend last year's positives—base running was a notable bright spot—and shore up weaknesses that kept them from playoff glory and a team pizza party. A home stand against North Division rivals Scranton/Wilkes Barre gives the team a chance to showcase offseason upgrades before cheering crowds at Coca-Cola Park.
Lehigh Valley IronPigs
In early 2014, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs made a major off-season acquisition: bacon. Although the team's name is a reference to pig iron—used in the manufacturing of steel—bacon speaks a universal language. In addition to its many culinary uses and getting sprinkled at newlyweds, it can now be found in the lockers of IronPigs players, emblazoned on their hats, sizzling across their jerseys, and waving down their pant legs on certain game days. Such creative innovations speak to the IronPigs' culture, which is a mixture of fan-friendly fun off the field and winning baseball on the field. The formula certainly keeps the seats filled at Coca-Cola Park, which was chosen as "Ballpark of the Year" in 2008 by Ballpark Digest.
