Details of Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs and the Ticket Luck value
The sport of baseball enjoys vast fan following all across the United States. It is one of the most watched sports of the nation, hence that kind of immense popularity has led baseball to enjoy unmatched popularity and fame. In present times, baseball is played on college, major and minor league level. All of these leagues have their own set of teams and their own fan following. Among quite a few of the minor league baseball teams is the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. Iron Pigs play under the membership of the International League while being Philadelphia Phillies’ Triple A Affiliate.
Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs was founded back in 1993 and they started playing their home games at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium, but quite recently in 2008 the team moved to Allentown, Pennsylvania to play their home games at the Coca Cola Park. The ballpark can hold the capacity crowd of about 10,000 baseball fans at a time. The team takes its name from the pig iron. Since Lehigh Valley is quite famous for its steel, and Pig Iron is used in the manufacturing of that steel. Before Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, the surrounding region was represented by Allentown Red Sox, who left the region back in 1960 just to relocate to Johnstown Pennsylvania. Since then, till the creation of Iron Pigs, the Lehigh Valley was deprived of its own baseball team that was affiliated with Major League.
In the city’s baseball history, it has also played home for two more independent baseball teams that were Lehigh Valley Black Diamonds and Allentown Ambassadors. The former team played for the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, while the latter one played for Northeast League. During their years of play, Ambassadors called Bicentennial Park their home ground up until the franchise folded back in 2004. As for the fate of Black Diamonds, the team just remained to be a traveling team because they were expected to relocate to Lehigh Valley Multi-Purpose Sports Complex near Easton, but that never happened. Today, Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs remain to be one of the most followed minor league baseball team in the surrounding region, and that is the reason why Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs tickets sell out pretty fast during their regular season.
It was in 1993 when the team was created, and at that time it was known as Ottawa Lynx. During their initial years, it played its home games at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium in Ottawa, Canada. The team kept it as its home ground till 2007. The following year, the team moved to Allentown, where it was renamed to Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. During their years of play as the Ottawa Lynx, the team was affiliated with three different major league franchises at different times. From 1993-2002, Lynx was affiliated with Montreal Expos, then from 2003-2006 with Baltimore Orioles, and finally with Philadelphia Phillies for the year 2007 and onwards. Before being affiliated with the Iron Pigs, the Phillies had Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons as their Triple-A affiliates. But in 2006, Red Barons moved to become Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. Another reason why Phillies ended their affiliation with the Red Barons was that they disliked the management of the Red Barons; hence they decided to bring minor league baseball back to Allentown by awarding their affiliation to Lynx after their contract was ended with the Orioles.
During the period when the Coca Cola park was being constructed, Phillies signed a Player Development Contract with, then Ottawa Lynx, for a year. And soon after the Coca Cola park was ready to take in the Lynx, the team instantly moved to Allentown and started being known as the Iron Pigs. After their move to Allentown, Iron Pigs were warmly welcomed by the baseball fans of the Allentown and soon the team started enjoying massive fan following in the region.
