If video games on the urinals aren't reason enough to get you out to a Lehigh Valley IronPigs game, maybe this will: One lucky IronPigs fan will win a free funeral at an upcoming game.
The IronPigs, the Triple-A Affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies (where Pedro Martinez once made a rehab stop), will be giving out one $10,000 funeral or memorial package during the team's Aug. 20 game against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. The team is calling the night a "Celebration of Life."
According to the Morning Call, that package includes a casket, embalming or cremation, professional services of a funeral director and staff, hearse and facility for funeral services, a headstone and a casket spray of flowers.
To register, fans are asked to submit an essay of 200 words or less describing their ideal funeral and why they deserve it.
"The best fans in Minor League Baseball deserve the opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime giveaway," IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes said in a statement. "Unquestionably, this is the most highly-coveted 'out-of-the-box' promotion in IronPigs history."
