Who Wants Four IronPigs Tickets?

Seen the IronPigs yet? If you've never been to a game, now's your lucky chance.

IronPigPen is giving away four tickets to Sunday's 1:35 PM game against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. There will be a postgame Easter egg hunt and an appearance by the Easter Bunny, so these tickets are great for kids.

It will be most interesting to see total attendance figures for the SECOND year.

Don't get me wrong, I attended 5 games last year, had a great time, and expect to go at least as often this year.

The numbers were VERY good last year, year two and beyond represent a greater challenge.

Many tickets were sold last year to curiosity seekers from Reading, Scranton, Philadelphia, Triple A fans from other states, and of course, locals. All MIGHT have had such a good time that they'll return. Only time will tell.

If you haven't been to an Iron Pigs game, I suggest you DO give it a try. It's a good night out, well run, and surely a plus for our community.


After first weekend, the IronPigs LEAD the league in BOTH total and average attendance

8,028.25 avg - 32,113 total for Lehigh Valley IronPigs

8,020.67 avg - 24,062 total for Louisville Bats

7,529.50 avg - 15,059 total for Rochester Red Wings

7,409.67 avg - 22,229 total for Durham Bulls and star pitcher David Price

7,051.75 avg - 28,207 total for Buffalo Bisons at Coca-Cola Field (original, say)

5,721.00 avg - 11,442 total for Syracuse Chiefs

4,881.00 avg - 19,524 total for Charlotte Knights

4,850.25 avg - 19,401 total for Indianapolis Indians

The IronPigs were collectively stomped 39-13 in losing all four games to open this season in less than hospitable weather for baseball, to be polite.

In case anyone is curious, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs drew 30,037 fans to the first four games EVER at Coca-Cola Park last year.

This year, the IronPigs drew 32,113 fans to the first four ball games.

Last year's weather was far superior if I remember correctly.
