Just when you thought you had seen it all, one minor league baseball team is taking it to a new level with bacon uniforms.
The Philadelphia Phillies-affiliated Lehigh Valley IronPigs unveiled the delicious new look and design of uniforms for 2014 which feature a sizzling piece of bacon front and center on jerseys and hats. The team is promoting the new look in a weeklong marketing campaign dubbed “SmellTheChange.

The bacon uniforms will be worn for Saturday games. Read the full release here.
But the bacon love doesn’t end there – just wait until fans smell it, too. The team is also selling team t-shirts that actually smell like bacon. Click here to order your own.
“You didn’t think we’d create a bacon logo and not have scratch and sniff t-shirts available did you?” the team asked on Twitter.
The campaign lit social media on fire, and many IronPigs and bacon fans have flocked to praise the move:
