Bacon is America's darling food, and it just isn't getting old. We've seen it in everything from lollipops to deodorant, and we've swooned over its transformative power in recipes of all kinds. Now, we're seeing it on baseball uniforms.
Minor League Baseball team the Lehigh Valley IronPigs revealed last week their new bacon-themed uniforms, to the delight of bacon-worshipers everywhere. Their jerseys show a bacon strip running beneath their team name, the hats have a bacon strip across the front, and their pants have bacon strips running down the side.
GrubStreet asks an important question: "Did these guys cook themselves, and isn't that bad?" Everyone -- including Grubstreet -- agrees, however, that the uniforms look cool.
The bacon-clad clothing isn't only for the players either. In addition to jerseys and baseball caps, fans can purchase a "scratch and sniff" t-shirt , whose smell will stay for 10 to 15 washes, according to the MiLB store website.
This team is really on to something, because if there's anything Americans love more than baseball, it's bacon.
