One of my favorite commercials of all-time:
Leave it to the Lehigh Valley Irons Pigs, the Triple A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, to lead the minor leagues in the wacky world of minor league baseball uniform entertainment. Naturally Geico sponsored the camel uniforms worn on Hump Day – Wednesday, July 1.
As reported by The Inquirer, it is becoming commonplace for the team to have players wear the novelty uniforms once, and then auction them off – with the proceeds going to charity. With a season’s record of 34-48 thus far, you have to give the club credit for doing everything it can to generate novelty for fans, and goodwill in the community.
