Meet the Lehigh Valley Jawn
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs have announced that they will play as the Lehigh Valley Jawn during their 2019 Salute to Philadelphia Celebration on Sunday, July 7. The word "jawn" is Philly slang that can mean essentially anything.
"Each year, we try to come up with new and exciting jawns for our fans," said IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes. "We've had cheesesteak jawns, Philly Special jawns, bacon jawns and more. We think this jawn is one of our best jawns yet. We can't wait to see the Pigs wear their Jawn jawns on July 7!"
A wide variety of Jawn-themed merchandise is now available at ShopIronPigs.com. During the Pigs' Salute to Philly contest against the Pawtucket Red Sox (1:35 p.m. first pitch), the team's game-worn Jawn jerseys will be auctioned and Jawn caps raffled with proceeds benefitting IronPigs Charities. The Phillie Phanatic will also be in attendance that afternoon with his visit presented by Dr. Wyke Pediatric Dentistry.
