Upon arrival at Coca-Cola Park security was tight. After revealing the secret password: RYNO and a receiving a full body scan access was granted. The next security zone was elevator access to HQ where fingerprints were scanned and identities checked.
After exiting the elevator all agents received Secret Agent badges.
One final layer of security remained…
Suddenly an Alarm sounded and Agent Lando led by his security entourage entered carrying the top-secret documents.
Using my super secret spy camera implanted in my left eye, I was able to capture the following video.
Randy Mobley, International League President was on hand to congratulate the Lehigh Valley IronPigs for becoming the first AAA Stadium to hold both the All-Star Game and the National Championship Game and where better than our own Coca-Cola Park!
