  • Another Phillies head scratcher....

    Ok, so this one's not much of a big deal but did anyone see thier choice of team name for their triple A team in Allentown? The IronPigs....what a....well...strange name to say the least.

    I'm guessing it is a play on the word pigiron which was mined extensively in the Allentown area historically.

      Turns out the name IronPigs was already taken. A motorcycle club in california made up of current and retired law enforcement offices already has the rights to that name. It won't amount to much because the names are slightly different and one is in Cali and the other Pennsylvania but it is interesting to see that the name has already caused a stir.

        I think IronPig is an old phrase for a someone who worked in the steel mills in PA.
