Iron Pigs game

We went to see the Iron Pigs (a "Phillies" minor league baseball team!) game last Saturday with my sister, Karen, and her husband, Tim!  We had a wonderful time, even in the COLD weather!  We were sitting there in warm coats, hats and gloves!! Unbelievable, because the temps hit the 80's here on Thursday!!!

Anyway, here are some pictures from the game.  They are all courtesy of my sister, Karen! Thanks, Kar!

We purchased the tickets for this game at Action Karate because the demo team was performing at the Iron Pigs pregame show for Martial Arts Night.

Here is the demo team performing:


They did an amazing job!  a big congrats to them!!!

This game was the Iron Pigs vs the Syracuse Chiefs.  It was only the 3rd game of the season!  

And here we are enjoying the pregame even in the cold (with Anne's and my eyes directly at the sun!!):

Here's Aunt Karen and Anne:

 Aunt Karen wanted to purchase a signed ball.  Anne picked the ball with all of the team's signatures!  WOOHOO, Anne!

 And the Iron Pigs won their first game of the season in the 11th inning.  Final score: 5 - 4!

A re-cap:
"Allentown, PA - On two occasions the Lehigh Valley IronPigs gave up late leads, but when the dust settled they clawed their way to a 5-4 walk-off win in 11 innings over the Syracuse Chiefs for their first win of the season Saturday night at Coca-Cola Park.  . . . The home team easily had its best offensive game of the year, pounding out 12 hits, led by the 4-for-6 performance of Hernandez, who drove in a pair of runs. Castro had a solid day at the plate as well, finishing 3-for-5 with two runs scored, while Martinez drove in two on two hits."

Here's the official Iron Pigs website!

Hopefully we will get to enjoy more games this summer!  Thank you, Karen, for supplying the photos!!!

 . . . and thank you for stopping by my blog today!

  4. Fun pics! I have never heard of the Iron Pigs - and now I have to follow the link to see if I can learn why on earth they have that name!

  5. Cindy, did you read why? It is a reference to pig iron used to manufacture steel, for which our area is known for!!
