Minor league team will wear 'Hump Day' camel jerseys

Wednesday April 8th, 2015

The Philadelphia Phillies Triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, are inviting fans to remember a commercial they liked a couple years ago with its new "Hump Day" promotion.

On Wednesday, July 1, the team will wear special alternate jerseys featuring a camel's face on the front and hindquarters on the back, all sponsored by Geico Insurance, the company which first ran the popular "Hump Day" commercials.

The Iron Pigs also will have an actual camel on hand for the game, and the press release states that the team is believed to be "the first team in Minor League Baseball history to don a camel-inspired jersey," which is a very impressive accomplishment considering the rate at which teams go through themed jerseys.
