Lehigh Valley IronPigs to Install “Urinal Gaming System” in Ballpark Restrooms (Video)
Minor league baseball teams are always coming up with wacky promotions. Last year the Lowell Spinners, single A farm team for the Boston Red Sox, had Boston Bruins star and eligible bachelor Tyler Seguin come in and do some speed dating during a game. A few years back, the very same team entertained the crowd by bringing out a monkey riding a horse. And of course, who could forget the stunt orchestrated by the Savannah Sand Gnats, in which they had a guy run around the bases…while on fire.
Well, today we’ve got another interesting minor league baseball promotion to tell you about. You see, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, have announced that they are installing a “urinal gaming system” at their ballpark in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
What is a “urinal gaming system,” you ask? Obviously, it’s a video game you control with your pee.
IronPigs GM Kurt Landes says the team has hired a British company to install the system on every urinal in Coca-Cola Park and that they should be ready to go by opening day.
“These games are sure to make a huge splash,” Landes explained, using the lamest pun ever. “Our fans are always looking for the next big thing and these ‘X-Stream games’ are another example of our commitment to providing an unparalleled entertainment experience in all aspects of Coca-Cola Park, including our restrooms.”
The price to play the pee games? Well, technically it’s free. However, the price of a medium soda at Coca-Cola park has now risen to $15. (Just kidding.)
