The IronPigs officially were mathematically eliminated from any playoff hopes tonight.
The IronPigs officially tied the season series with the SWB Railriders today BUT lost the newly minted IronRail Trophy in a tiebreaker that stated that in case of a tie, the winner would be whoever won the final game.
The IronPigs are still hanging on to their hopes for Highest Average per Game in Attendance but it’s as slim a chance as the Wildcard spot was this morning.
Ahead of the Lehigh Valley is Columbus.
Columbus has had 67 openings with 2 remaining. They have sold a total of 612,565 tickets this season for a current average of 9,143 per game.
The Lehigh Valley has had 68 openings with 2 remaining. They have sold a total of 594,261 tickets this season for a current average of 9,004 per game.
Both parks have a capacity of 10,000. It is a holiday weekend.
How the Pigs take the lead: Sell out both games giving them a final average of 9,036. Columbus sells an average below 10,900 for both games.
How Columbus wins: Sell 10,901 tickets over the two games.
With that said, there IS ANOTHER CONTEST we can help the Lehigh Valley win!
Our beloved bartender from Coca Cola Park has entered her recipe in the “Thrillist’s Search for America’s Best Bloody”(Bloody Mary)
Known to some as Rebecca, to others as Becca and to most as “Fred” our favorite Balloon artist is currently in 6th place in the entire United States!
Let’s get the votes in! I know you can do it, we once almost voted the entire IronPig’s team into the IL All Star game, we can win this!
Win this for the Lehigh Valley! Perhaps if she wins she will demonstrate how to create the drink for the Vast Valley of Sports?
