Tomorrow is another day enroute to Opening day at The Coke. National Pig Day has historically been the first opportunity to purchase single game tickets for the Ironpigs season.
Compared to other years, this one seems pretty standard and tame. Early goers can get a free pork sandwich or hot dog. Folks that come by later in the morning can see the clown (to clarify, it’s a lady in a clown outfit who performs for children) and you can take a few swings in the batting cage. This year you can also take home an Ironpig’s yard sign that appears to be similiar to the standard plastic over wire frame sign that politicians spread throughout the Valley each fall. Free gift or free advertising? I’ll leave that decision up to you.
Anyways, just another step closer to the gates opening and baseball returning for the summer.
